A B-movie which is a lot of fun.
14 May 2004 | by Starfox500See all my reviews

Sumuru was never meant to be a first class science fiction movie. It's meant to be fun and the producers didn't take themselves too serious. With that in mind when I watched the DVD I was surprised that it wasn't bad at all. I liked it a lot and unlike other movies will certainly watch it again. The SFX could have been better sometimes and why would women walk around in a desert in clothing like that? Overall they did good work with this and especially Michael Shanks did an excellent job with his acting.

If you want some deep meaning, serious drama, this one isn't for you. If you want to have fun, maybe with a few friends, get Sumuru, get out the popcorn and enjoy.
