HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Wait, I was not supposed to laugh...
23 April 2000 | by Funky ASee all my reviews

Revenge of the Radioactive Reporter enters in that category of movies that are so awfully bad, they are incredibly funny... Everything about this movie is absolutely ridiculous, starting with the title and ending with the ridiculous ending. Sometimes, the script is so incoherent you can't follow the story, which is so stupid you will want to cry... The acting doesn't help either. The actors deliver their (ridiculous) lines with the conviction of a dead hamster(that's not a lot). Some of the scenes are incredibly weird, including the scenes where the radioactive reporter(can you imagine such a stupid idea as a RADIOACTIVE REPORTER???) dreams about some kind of freak show... Was their a point to this sequence? The scenario makes absolutely no sense. Also, the special effects(or, to quote Hardware Wars, the special defects) are very cheap... The elephant man is one of the most ridiculous costumes in movie history, and that radioactive reporter isn't very convincing either. A lack of suspense where there is supposed to be some is also remarkable... How could somebody have made such a bad movie while trying to be serious is absolutely mind-boggling... This movie is one of the worst ever...

5% from a serious point of view, 100% from the cheese-o-meter's point of view...
