What do you expect? After all, these are the people that brought you Jack Deth and the Trancers movies! It's an occasionally slow-paced sci-fi western parody. The acting is mostly dreadful, and the plot is telegraphed a mile away, but if you didn't expect that from the Full Moon folks, you deserve what you get. A movie best experienced with friends and vast quantities of intoxicants. Those of us who read comics in the 70s will get the "Man-Thing" reference, and it is a hoot to see George Takei telling a bottle of whiskey, "Jim Beam me up!" Meg Foster is totally wasted as a cyborg deputy, but she does what she can with a terrible role. I loved Musetta Vander as the S&M fantasy gal Lash. A good bad movie in spite of occasional slow bits and obvious plotting. MST3K material for sure.
