American senator John Perryman, who delivers a fiery speech in Moscow about the impending consequences of the endemic corruption in Russian economy. His is a mission to warn Russian politicians, that, should they not heed and corruption prevails, he could foresee the loss of their human form, and become life size rats. Many take John for a madman, and ultimately all his friends and relatives turn away from him. He meets a girl in the streets, who in essence becomes his guardian angel. The central intrigue of the film is that everything the hero talked about in Moscow begins to come true, triggering panic in Russia and across the world. To the people in power it seems that the hero commands some monstrous force unknown to science. The presidents of the U.S. and Russia seek ways to isolate him from society.
Let's cut to the chase. Without a doubt, Ratcopalypse is definitely the worst movie ever made. At first, I thought it might be a hoax, but when I realized that someone actually wrote this, cast it, raised $3 million for the production, and ultimately screened it, I was befuddled, amazed and angry.
There is not a single redeeming quality that this movie can claim...except to set the mark for "Worst Motion Picture of All Time." The classic stinker "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" plays like "Citizen Kane" next to this steaming pile of road apples. To think that $3 million was spent on this bucket of chum, when that money could have been spent on ANYTHING else, is sad and frustrating.
It's too bad that I could not rate this any lower than zero stars, as RatpocqlpseSave yourself the time and aggravation in making your own determination. Or take a personal challenge to sit through this amazing stink fest without leaving, getting angry or taking a baseball bat to your $5,000 TV.
