Good Cheese, 19 January 2005
Chances are, if Michael Pare is the star of the movie, it is cheesy.
Not necessarily bad, but cheesy. "Streets Of Fire", in my opinion, was
great, but cheese notwithstanding. This movie is of the Mad Max ilk,
but instead of fuel, it's water that is coveted. Adam Ant plays a
Manson-type cult figure who is trying to rob Bruce Dern's town of its
water/treasure, and Michael Pare comes in to help Dern with a pretty
motley bunch. Adam Ant was quite good, and Bruce Dern was funny.
Michael Pare was....well...Michael Pare. No one will confuse his body
of work with DeNiro or Pacino, but if you like him, as I do, well, it
doesn't make us bad people, does it?
If you are looking for "Saving Private Ryan", this ain't it. If you are
like cheese, this beats Velveeta.
