What a bummer of a film..!
2 October 2005 | by (Luton, England) – See all my reviews

Electra.. The new movie starring Playboy Playmate Shannon Tweed.. I saw this a few years ago.. I must admit, it was one of the most terrible movies I've seen.. My Sister and I watched it.. We were just laughing our heads off throughout the movie..

In this film, you got this funny looking billionaire Roach (STEN EIRIK) who looks like something out of Dr Who.. looking for a serum which can turn some human into superhuman.. The serum is in a teen kid's body, Billy (JOE TABB).. So Roach send his guys to keep Billy's butt and get the serum from him..

As it goes on, there were so many flaws in that film.. I really couldn't get the hang of anything on there..

So, I felt like this is totally gross.. Pure pappy-show! I know for a fact, Ashok Amritraj made produced some really good action films.. But this is one of his worsts..

Well, in the world of film-making.. There are some good points and there are some bad points.. I'm just looking at the bad..

It's terrible! Not my cup of tea! Awful! 1 out of 10!
