Turkey Shoot...# 2
16 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A dead rancher (Olivier Gruner) is revived by aliens in order to stop an evil scientist (or evil businessman, it's never made clear) who is trying to live in cyberspace (This is one of the film's less believable ideas) also we learn that the aliens are our gods and that they were the ones who created us and Olivier Gruner is made into an efficient killing machine who uses his savage skills to dispense of the bad guys and protect his new love interest Nicky Grant (Jennifer Grant) in this wildly incomprehensible sci-fi clunker. I need to explain myself, I'm doing a binge on Olivier Gruner for Thanksgiving because I myself can't get enough turkey and no man has put out more turkey than Oli Gruner but let's be perfectly candid, even for Gruner flicks this is really, really bad stuff. It's literally so weird and bizarre it's almost worth watching. I mean you will not see a movie as demented or senseless then this mess. However if your morbidly curious,go to it, I for one was lost through out and mainly the movie wasn't so funny as it was just blatantly confusing. Anyone who can tell you that they actually made sense out of this thing, is someone who lies. Plain and simple, Savage makes no sense and is only, for fans of Troma films. Also surprisingly Gruner doesn't fight as much as one would expect.
