Quite nice at some moments but not really interesting
It's a B Movie, probably even less. It has some funny moments, but it is boring. Music was OK. About the sound effects, I realized that some were from the Computer game Gothic 1 or 2, especially that one scream sound was just stolen from the game - which somehow speaks for itself. The story was incredibly lame. The villains were strange and incapable of anything. The acting was so bad that it hurt my ears, especially the Japanese woman was capable of doing this... I had trouble taking the Nazis seriously - it was all in all more of a comedy. I liked the puppets, nice and mysterious but even those couldn't help this movie out of the horrible script. Most of the situations and almost the whole plot didn't make that much sense. I'm sorry to tell you this but it is not a movie to appreciate. It was simply ridiculous at all. After watching it I had a big question mark standing on my head: Why Nazis? They didn't do anything Nazi-like, besides hailing each other about 2 times in the whole movie - that's all and they still name it "Axis of Evil" ... At least it had some kind of atmosphere that let me watch it until the end.
