Zuma
24 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Consider that this movie was made in the 80s with a budget of probably $60,000 whereas American movies, their budget can be millions of dollars, this movie is actually not as bad as the above post. True, that it did prolong its story, but it's because the director and writers clearly did not read the comics which has great characterization of who Zuma was and how his spawn will be the end of him. Again, consider this movie is a low budget and no thrills. I'd actually watch this more than Superman Returns and his illegitimate son with Lois Lane. Also, there is a remake of this movie coming out 2008 with higher budget and better special effects. Hopefully, it will be better visually, but knowing the crap of movies Philippines is churning out, don't expect X-men.
