Amazing, 21 January 2011
Author: Ashley Alexander from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This movie is amazing! Amazing it was even made that is. Recon 2023 is third in the Recon saga, which of course means it's three times as bad as the first.

Although it's obvious the production team worked very hard on this movie, it's just as obvious that, once again for a third time, they failed utterly. It's like watching a retarded kid vigorously trying to dig a hole with a toothpick. It's funny and even a little endearing, but also pretty sad.

Unfortunately for those of us with half a brain, these movies fail on every conceivable level. The plot (if there is one) makes no sense, the humor is juvenile and stupid, the special effects aren't very special, none of the characters really seem to understand what they're saying, and there really isn't much "recon" going on in a movie titled "Recon." These movies are a sad excuse to have people dress up like soldiers, shoot guns, and shout a lot. Not to mention random gratuitous sex and nudity, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but is stale and tasteless here. Oh and speaking of the aforementioned guns, most of the prop guns used (including by the aliens) are of the 20th-century variety, most from the cold war period. One would think that there would be some improvements to the weaponry in a humanity capable of interstellar flight.

This movie blatantly copies almost every action, sci-fi, horror, and cheesy romance film ever made, chopped up into little pieces and served to us like a smoothie. It's not even a "it's so bad it's funny" kind of movie. It's like if Uwe Boll and Michael Bay got drunk together one night and hysterically wrote the script, only to leave it at the hotel bar for the barkeeper-who's-saving-for-film-school to find it and say "wow this is pure genius!" Don't waste your money on this one, watch it on Netflix after exhausting all other options, or pirate it off the internet. But for the sake of humankind, don't let these people have any more money to make more movies.
