Fellini meets the Coen Brothers
14 March 2006 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This is really a very good film. It has all of the visual wildness of a Fellini movie with all of the character development of a Coen Brother's film. The main thing that I personally like about this film is that there is all of these various characters, which all develop and expand the story for this film. They are then all tied together by the character Jack B. Quick, Space Sheriff, played by Scott Shaw. I think was a great idea and a great way to present a lot of very good story development and add depth to the many characters that make-up this film.

Though this is considered a monster flick. The monster, which is very good, is almost secondary to the characters presented in this film. Robert Z'Dar plays a great bad guy. Joe Estevez is this very interesting character reminiscent of 1950's and 1960's T.V. who pops into the film about half way though and provided this great, very bizarre, story narration.

There is also a lot of gun play in this movie. What I really like about this fact is that the gun play does not possess all the blood, guts, and gore of many indie films on the market right now. Instead, it is very stylized like the violence of 70's T.V.

The locations this film was shot at also deserve a mention. This film was not shot in only one or two very stagnant locations. Instead, it was filmed in numerous very visual locations. I believe this is a common stylistic trait of the films that Donald G. Jackson and Scott Shaw created. One of the most interesting scenes in this film is when the reporter character is giving one of her news reports. In this scene there were all kinds of news vans, news crews, and news reporters behind her. This must have cost a lot of money to pay all of those extras and to set up that scene. But, that is just one of the subtle elements that makes this film worth the watch.

The punk rock combines with country music also adds a very interesting and unique element to this film. The theme song is great! Overall, this is a really good movie.
