The Best Of Empire Pictures Vol 1
9 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

This movie was a very fine example of when Empire pictures delivered the goods, they really did so by the bucket load! With a crackerjack scenario, one helluva cast of Empire regulars and an overwhelming charm that just made this movie one of the best entries in the canon of Empire Pictures body of work.

When it came to realising the perfect off the wall fantasy pitch Messrs Bilson and De Meo really knew their collective stuff, having already penned the ultra cool and one of my all time favourite Empire movies 'Trancers'.

With this movie, they take the well worn path of the war movie and infuse it with a comic book touch! Rather than bore anyone with the retelling of the storyline, let's just say this, Tim Thomerson as the cast iron and seriously indestructible Sarge cuts the mustard, whilst Biff Manard and Art LaFleur give able assistance.

As with most Empire productions, the budget was minimal, but having filmed the movie in Italy, the exteriors and the actions surrounding the characters more than pick up the slack in terms of money spent on the production, that being said who needs money when you've got imagination, and the creative team behind this classic fantasy tale threw everything they had right at it.

Back when this movie first hit the video shelves, I used to make a point of hiring it out every week, like I did with nearly every other Charles Band/Empire production, and truth to tell, I never tired of watching them, because they shaped my taste in movies and to this day I will always pick a small low budget movie such as 'Zone Troopers' over any big budget movie any day.

Without hesitation this movie gets 10/10
