Ill conceived, funny moments.
13 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Private investigator Rick Shaw must track down the evil Fu Manchu, who is doing something bad to the movie industry (though I couldn't exactly work out what ....)

It's as if the Somers Carroll production company was unexpectedly allocated time at Movie World & they thought - gosh, we'll just throw a script together using any random ideas we have had over the last 30 years, fly the cast & friends of Hey Hey up to Queensland, and whacko, we'll have an instant 40 minute movie (okay technically it's a 6 part serial).

There's a lot of strangeness in the storytelling technique; seems the director doesn't know that pantomime characters don't translate well to movies (well he knows NOW !)

Perhaps the first draft of the script was the only draft. Why is there a time machine ? There are many funny bits.

It's worth watching once, but you won't watch it twice.

If Terry Gilliam were given a $100 budget and 1 day, it's the kind of fun nonsense he might come up with.
