Storyline

A master jewel thief in 21st century Los Angeles targets the illegal emerald smuggling operations of a highly-connected crime syndicate. During what he believes to be a routine heist, cat burglar Harry Maxwell discovers that his target, notorious criminal Sanchez Boon is also the target of a police raid. In attempting to evade both the law and Boon's well-armed men, Harry meets Pandora Grimes, one of dozens of young women Boon kidnapped to work in his factory. When Boon sets a group of social deviants free and hijacks a space transport ship and its crew, only Harry and Pandora's cunning can save the hundreds of innocent people aboard.

Citizen Kane of Bad Movies
4 August 2002 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

If you like bad movies, this is like the Citizen Kane of bad movies. It's sci-fi meets Miami Vice meets Plan 9 from Outer Space. It stars Scott McNeil, Canadian Voice Actor, as Harry Maxwell, an aging jewel-thief who actually looks about 20 years old and C. Thomas Howell who had a great time chewing the scenery as Sanchez Boon, the Emerald lord (drugs are so 5 minutes ago in the future).

There are lots of seedy characters, buxom women, some gratuitous nudity and buckets of bullets that fly freely in close quarters and miss their intended targets. The dialogue is well.. really bad. The acting, aside from the lead characters, is well.. really, really bad. Plan 9 had better acting. Best scene: Harry Maxwell knocks out buxom blond heroine, aptly named, Pandora to save her life. The plot undulates like a belly dancer. Just when you're sure what's going on, it slithers somewhere else. The story ends but the movie keeps rolling. There is one more, then one more scene tacked on like a bad toupee. It's a real treat for those who like to wince.

I would highly recommend renting it. It's funny, it's awful, it's got lots of eye candy for all and some things you just gotta see once!
