weak effort from lenzi
10 October 2017 | by ElWormoSee all my reviews

Umberto Lenzi is a director I have loads of respect for, but his hit-rate is erratic to say the least. He's responsible for one of the most enjoyably bonkers giallos I've ever seen in SPASMO, one of the most enjoyably bonkers cannibal flicks I've ever seen in EATEN ALIVE, and one of the most (wait for it) enjoyably bonkers 80s slashers I've ever seen in WELCOME TO SPRING BREAK. But he also directed some right loads of boring old tosh - case in point IRONMASTER.

This movie is just 90 minutes of random loincloths and bludgeoning, with a boneheaded excuse for a plot attached. The whole thing could quite easily be condensed into 60 seconds, perhaps even 30. The dialogue and acting is as bad as I expected, but didn't give me any laughs. The whole prehistoric caveman thing is not my bag anyway but the complete lack of variation in setting and tone from start to finish made it a snoozefest. Any old director and bunch of actors could've made this thing... it's not offensively bad, but Lenzi has done so much more entertaining work.
