A Candidate for Mystery Science Theatre 3000
31 July 1999 | by warloverSee all my reviews

A taste of hell, indeed! If hell is half as bad as this movie was, then I pray for any poor soul heading for Dante's Inferno!

In a nutshell, the script was non-existent, the plot, well there was actually no plot, and the fighting, well, you could tell this was a pathetic "B" Movie. There was no character development, even the slashing of a knife looked fake. The only reason I didn't turn this movie off after the first three minutes was in respect for the $ 1.07 I shelled out for this flop! The costumes looked, surprise surprise, like the seventies and not like WWII 1942. The movie lacked any dénouement though I will give it the credit of having a climax. All in all, as I said in my title, this would truly be a knee slapper on Mystery Science Theatre 3000!
