Did You Know?


Combines 65 minutes of new film footage with 35 minutes of film footage acquired from five separate full motion video computer games. In a similar manner to the original Raymond Burr Godzilla, all scenes with Yasmine Bleeth and 'Walter Koenig' were originally shot for computer games that never made it to market in 1998. It weaves together a new story and plot connecting the various games together. See more »

beyond "not a good movie"
20 June 2009 | by capcanukSee all my reviews

I always take the "this is the worst movie ever made" critiques on IMDb with a massive grain of salt... after all, there are threads stating that "War of the Worlds" and "The Day the Earth Stood Still" deserve that moniker. Needless to say, this film most heartily deserves the title of "One of the absolute worst films ever made". If it had been done in fun, with a light touch, as a comedic film, for kids, it MIGHT, just might have been forgivable. This film plods along, taking itself deathly seriously with some of the most dreadful acting I have ever witnessed (and yes, I've watched tons of Hammer films, and even Ed Wood films!). Just take everyone's advice, and steer clear of this stinker.
