Not even good for the novelty
6 February 2005 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

My friend got this in a 2-for-1 package, and rather than pay the store to keep it for him, he decided to take it with the other movie. Bad decision, now it takes up space at his house. From the first scene you knew it was an 80s movie, even though it was made in 1990, the styles and acting were straight out of 1985, but don't get excited, it wasn't enough to make it a cult movie, just plain bad. The acting was so bad that I was very much expecting the cast to take their clothes off and do some porn. Although there was a "SEX" scene, there was nothing there I wouldn't mind my 5 year-old to watch (so if you were hoping for some skin, don't bother). Even the Britts and underground freaks that were supposed to be comic relief were trying so hard to be stupid that it just was painful. Watch for when the sniper shoots the guy with the ring. When he shoots, the cross-hairs are on the lower rear right corner of the guys skull (mastoid), yet, when you see him in the morgue, the hole is dead center in his forehead. I could accept a plea that it was an exit wound and maybe it was a small caliber bullet allowing it to change direction after bouncing off the bone and cutting through the brain, but, this was an entry wound.

I gave this 2 of 10 stars because 1 star would mean it was bad enough to be nominated for a cult classic (see "Plan 9 from Outer Space" etc.), but it isn't. It just sucked all the way through. I think if the cinematography and editing were worse I could say it was funny, but the cinematography and editing were the only things I liked in this movie. If you are forced to take this home like my friend was and you feel absolutely obligated to watch it, make sure you are doing something else during the movie, like homework or bills or sleep, so that it isn't an absolute waste of 84 minutes (I thought it was longer, felt like a 2 hour movie, nice, that saved 35 minutes of my life.)
