Roger Corman presents...it says it all
27 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Future fear is produced by our friend Roger Corman, who is recognized for producing very cheesy movies, and for directing some pretty bad movies featuring Vincent Price, long ago. But this review isn't about Roger Corman...First, let's start with what happens when you're at the video. You're walking and looking on the shelves to choose a movie. You see this one, with Jeff Wincott on the cover, holding a huge, killer gun, and a shot Maria Ford's face, with a couple of explosions. Then you look upper, and you see the DVD version (the one that is shown on the IMDb page, which has EXACTLY the same picture of Jeff Wincott, except he's wearing a futuristic suit and holding a bigger gun. The Maria Ford shot is also different. She is wearing a red leather suit with a gun. Now, the problem is that the biggest gun in this film is a Beretta 270 pistol. They also seem to have stolen one of the laser guns from James Bond's Moonraker. It looks exactly the same. Now, why am I spending so many words for something that is absolutely not important, the guns? Well, that is simply because the covers seem to be trying to show that the film's charms are the big guns, which are absent in this film. But let's continue the story of the guy at the video. He takes this movie, hoping so much action, explosions, guns, and brings it to his home. He puts it in the video, after paying 3 or 4 bucks for the rent. He watches it. The first explosion he'll see is also the last, and it is so very badly done, it looks like a video game's explosion on a real background, it really looks corny. Okay, the guy's deceived, but he continues watching it. He sees a dream sequence, which is surprisingly well filmed and moody. But then comes a scene of sexuality, including nudity of Maria Ford, and the guy asks himself this particular question:"Did the director try to save his film with some cheap nudity?". First, that director will have to learn some things; When you want to put special effects, such as spaceship effects and an explosion, make sure it doesn't look cartoonish or like a Reboot episode. He'll also have to learn that the names of our friends Jeff Wincott, Maria Ford and even Mr.Stacy Keach are not an advantage on the cover of a film. He'll have to learn that an idea that could make a 10 minutes short film should not be turned into a 89 minutes feature. He'll also have to learn that erotic scenes have to be shot in a different context than during a fight where you see flashbacks of sexual acts the characters had that can be compared to the way they are fighting. Finally, an action movie should at least contain an ingredient; some action. This one has none, just a brief fight at the end, but it's still very weak and lame action. This movie has no budget, and it didn't deserve any, don't give that director more budget for his next film, he should stop directing. This film is torture. I give it a generous 1/10.
