Prince of Space...Chief

All right, what the #$^# could ANYBODY be thinking that made this movie. It's actually worse than "Prince of Space." The dubbing on the kids is far more annoying than Krankor's laugh. Oh yeah, the reason I'm comparing these two is because they're the SAME movie!

This movie isn't all bad, though. It does have some nice cameos, such as the one made by the Fürher himself, Adolf Hitler. Plus it introduces us to stop-short-from-ten-feet-away fighting.

Well, I'm going to seek revenge on the idiots who made this movie. See you later.
