Cheesy, nonsensical, but can be funny at times
1 March 2015 | by TyrkeSee all my reviews

To me, this is an essential "so bad it's good" movie. As per usual with such films, a friend dared me to watch Sons of Steel. After accepting the challenge, I gave it a watch. Wow.

The movie is a semi-musical sci-fi from Australia. The concept is interesting, and there is definitely some artistic value hidden in it. Trying to describe the plot is like playing cat's cradle while riding a bike sitting backwards, blindfolded. Most of the time it doesn't make any sense. What makes this movie good is the fun factor: the director obviously was having fun making the film. It's obvious that the jokes are cheesy, and are meant to be so. In my opinion, the cheese is the most appealing part of Sons of Steel. Some of the quotes stuck with me for over a decade, and I can sharply recall some of the weirdest scenes from the movie in a heartbeat.

I consider SoS an essential party movie, which you should watch with your friends amidst a constant mix of booing and laughing.
