So bad, it's great!
26 May 2004 | by MightyBSee all my reviews

Saw this flick 10 years ago with a couple of friends and a few beers and we were blown away! The storyline is confoundingly stupid, the dialogue so scarce and grotesquely bad that none of us were able to control ourselves. This is a rare gem, as most bad movies are just plain bad; this one takes bad to another level, and if you're ever able to find it, savor it with your friends, although drunkenness might be required ... A truly great moment is the scene where a rainbow seems to have been painted directly onto the celluloid with a couple of crayons, another is when our hero bandages himself with his torn yellow dirty t-shirt, only to wear the shirt, which has now been cleaned, for the duration of the movie without showing any signs of injury - oh, and the one-handed stick fight in which the villain and the hero fights with one foot long sticks - and never using the other hand to lash out at each other. I could keep going, but you have to see it for yourself - it doesn't get much better or worse!
