A silly rip off of countless American films
8 August 2002 | by SorsimusSee all my reviews

Silly action from the Italian maestro Enzo G. Castellari about a mad scientist who blackmails the city of San Francisco with his laser.

Silly effects, predictable script, sensationally bad acting and lots more make this one a treat for all you mad scientist film fans out there. And Eric Estrada fans anywhere...

Seriously, only someone with a heart of stone can watch through this without laughing out loud. Recommended for therapy, then!
