Mediocre at best
19 April 2003 | by (Greensboro, N.C.) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie with intentions of seeing a very cheesy piece of film, but ended up seeing a well-intended, but ultimately average independent movie. My disappointment of not seeing full-out zombies being hired to take care of guerrilla terrorists in South America was only slightly put aside by a few decent special effects, and a stop-motion monster. My knowledge that this was a film portraying the 1950's wasn't very assured until I read the previous review of this movie on this website half way through, and realized that something didn't quite seem right in the movie. The flying globe and some of the stop-motion effects were the only saving factor of this decent independent film, because the acting was minimal and story was tired and dragging.

Maybe if this movie was titled differently, and not leading to imply it is a schlock-fest, I might have treated it differently, but I really wanted to see a crappy movie. Instead I got a black and white attempt at atmosphere and story. How embarrassing.

Final Judgement: Mistitled and slightly enjoyable, but shows promise
