Two aliens from the planet Hondo have come take over our planet. But when they discover an amazing human invention called "music", they immediately abandon their mission, head to a tiny Brooklyn bar, and start the universe's first Hondonian bluegrass duo: Future Folk! Written by
Can a war-mongering general from the Planet Hondo give up his planet-dominating ways, and find family, folk music and friendship on Earth? I started to watch this film with the hammer of judgement in my right hand, a tool reserved for meting out justice to low-budget movies that arrive direct-to-video with little fanfare. For once, the hammer remained suspended. This films is amusing, engaging, well-acted and never attempts to over-reach its modest ambitions or available resources. I was waiting for the discordant moment that usually blemishes films such as this, but it never arrived. The music performed by Future Folk ain't half-bad either.
