Fantastic
5 July 2009 | by krabborgSee all my reviews

I have seen Star Wars, I have seen 2001: A Space Odyssey, I have seen The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The Things... But I can not safely say that I had seen a movie until I saw the Australian epic, Time Guardian. I can truly vouch for this movie, it was simply phenomenal. I had heard it recommended by dignitaries, ambassadors, presidents, kings, dukes, squires, magistrates, C.E.O.s and of course associates and cronies, but was skeptical until I finally sat down and was swept away by the electric brilliance of this mind boggling, golden film. With an all star cast including Carrie Fisher and some blonde Aussy chick and Peter Merrill, it leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. You will dump your pants. The actors from this film, "Aren't just plumbers that you can bribe to fix your bathroom overnight, they kill to live!!!" and if you don't like this movie, you can't run a DVD player, and, "you probably can't even run a hot bath!" Watch this or your life is a failure!
