How could such a bad movie have got financed?
15 December 2008 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

Prison Planet made in 1992....I watched it tonight (using a fair amount of fast forward). It was called Badlanders here in Bahrain. I thought at first it was made in the 50's about the same time as Quatermass etc.

I went on line to check its date. I was surprised to see 1992. What a load of rubbish. The technology displayed was ancient, the hovering vehicles stupid and the car a mince meat version of something out of Mad Max.

How could such a bad movie have got financed? Surely someone was checking their investment during production. This was definitely the worst film I have ever seen and that is saying something as I have been watching movies for nearly sixty years!
