Is it A Disney movie?
28 July 2018 | by adw-95701See all my reviews


This was crap. Bad acting. Stupid script. Guns jamming at all the right (wrong) times. The leader's angry bouts were hilariously overdone. The spaceship has less capability and technology than a Japanese toilet and then there is a guy in a suit, tie and hat walking around the desert trading information no one knows how he obtained..

It is so bad you'd think you are watching Disney Star Wars crap or something.

Three Stars for the thin eye candy woman with fine sexy legs who for some reason has a nice dress, luscious legs and great hair and make-up in the middle of the desert despite the harsh climate, fighting and capture.

In Prison Planet II (don't laugh Disney is releasing more so-called Star Wars) we see the king rule again.
