Makes you want to BBQ your VCR
13 July 2001 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is absolutely terrible, which means if you watch it with some friends some night when you have NOTHING else to do, you might actually have a good time (which is why I gave it a 2 instead of a 1).

The inane "plot" follows some kind of freedom fighter (I think) who purposely has himself sent to the prison planet (hence the name), so he can find the spiritual leader of the resistance (I think). Along the way, he is sidetracked with stolen slave girls, a convict (go figure) warlord/slave trader, and some guy in a suit whose very presence is perpetually nonsensical.

One of my friends summed up the quality of this movie when he said "it's like a porno without the sex". Brutal. Look for the scene in the tent where the lighting actually changes from angle to angle. Or any of the dialogue. Or the hovering spaceship shots (Plan 9 From Outer Space, is that you?). Or the spaceship door that flaps in the wind. This must be the only movie where a hunted man can be found anywhere on a planet with only four bad guys and two cars to do the job (note: if you're on a planet and four guys are looking for you, don't run along the planet's only road).

If you want to save yourself the cost of a rental, show your ten year old nephew your copy of Mad Max and ask him to videotape something like it with his friends. It would probably be better. (Though not as funny.)
