Amusing but difficult to ignore the irony of it being available online while the film it is spoofing doesn't exist anymore
21 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ironically enough I saw this film screened with the remaining fragments of the 1913 British film "The Battle of Waterloo", which has almost totally been lost from the records. I say ironically because apparently the idea came from Pimple himself (Fred Evans) saw the original film, which was one of the new feature length epic films from the British producers and decided to cash in on its success by doing a mickey take of it. It was a good idea and it was well done and the resulting film is quite amusing and silly throughout. Hard to say how it compares to the film it is spoofing because it doesn't really exist any more but certainly approach seems to be the same as modern spoofs such as Scary Movie etc do by recreating the film but subverting it to make fun and get laughs at its expensive. Amusing little short film then – just a shame that the epic it is spoofing has been lost forever.
