So bad ...... Its brilliant !
26 April 2004 | by ro_bilcoSee all my reviews

This film is Hilarious.

The Budget was so small that they had to re-use extras repeatedly. There's this one guy who stands out like a sore thumb,

(He's a Black Guy with huge Yellow front teeth), I counted him in the film 22 times, with Brandon Lee killing him 18 of those times !

Editing is the worst I have ever seen .......

Bad guy called: "Col. Kalishnakov" ......

Ernest Borgnine as a German, who speaks with a Russian acent.....

Majority of the crew have never worked on another film.....

This would be brilliant to show in Film School's, for what not to do.

This film is so terribly bad, that its actually Brilliant !

I WAS drunk the first time I saw it, so I laughed more, even still though - You gotta see this film.
