Attack of the Killer Lamas
8 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, ANYone going into this film expecting anywhere close to high art is a certified brain dead moron. I mean the director/writer was responsible for all 4 Killer Tomato films for god's sake. Nope, you're not here for Oscar caliber cinema (whatever THAT means), you're here to watch Lorenzo 'Renegade' Lamas kick copious amounts of ass. Lamas is Jake Kilkanin, a presumingly borderline mentally retarded ex-cop, who teams up with a stripper (Catherine Lazo, whom i look forward to seeing absolutely none of in the future) trying to find her abducted banker husband. This film is kinda sorta fun in that it's so atrociously bad, but it doesn't make the film that watchable even in the 'so bad' kinda way. It's OK for a few chuckles i guess

Eye Candy: Christine Kludjian gets topless (sadly Shauna Sand remains clothed)

My Grade: D
