Lots of imagination here.
28 June 2002 | by (Birmingham, Alabama) – See all my reviews

I don't know why IMDb has zilch on this movie, but it's very cool and full of creative departures from run of the mill movies. The "Border Patrol" in question has no jurisdiction on geographic borders. Its mission is to patrol the border between the living world and the netherworld. It keeps tabs on those troublemakers who have passed on, but still seek to mess with the corporeal world.

Given that premise, the execution is a lot better than you'd expect from a movie that gets a blank page in our favorite Database. The real world is dressed in typical modern day accouterments, but the netherworld is awash in coolth. Old customized Packard sedans with right-hand drive, manual typewriters that clack out computerized data, and some very stylish zoot suits and fedoras.

The cast runs a pretty wide range of talent, from wholly professional to embarrassingly amateurish. On the other hand, the special effects are up to snuff. The Border Patrol handguns look great and fire something I just can't resist calling pulses of netherenergy.

I rate it a pretty ingenious affair all around, and it's driven by a worthy if not revolutionary plot. The mystery to me is why IMDb has so little data on it.
