Dark comedy sci-fi epic worth checking out.
20 August 2011 | by info-111-730277See all my reviews

Rob Leetham is great as he inter-dimensionally takes over this movie. From the boom and bust Pete Blaggit to the point that he even self replicates out of his own bottom, totaling out his role count at five. My favourite is Uri.

I know that probably wasn't the best review you'll ever get but this movie is a MUST SEE and I think destined for many awards and high critical acclaim. The fall and rise and hopeful rise again of Pete Blaggit so echoes the zeitgeist of global economic and spiritual decline but offers salvation via alien intervention and space-time portal refrigerators!

Props to Gabrielle Amies also, not just cause she's fit, her portrayal of long suffering wife Tracy is touching performance and of course Andy Pandini as the hop headed brother Eugene. With his Floyd and Wizard of Oz obsessions offers not only a great comic foil to Leetham but some really genuine emotion in the more bitter sweet philosophical moments of this most cheerfully dark comedy sci-fi epic. Adam Ricketts's Tinman is quiet scary as well ;) 9/10.
