What the World...Needs Now...Is More...Sky Pirates
The campiness and self-aware melodrama of the style is utterly delightful when paired with the acting calibre of leads Platt & Lowenthall and modern action soundbytes sprinkled in just the right doses. Platt is especially spectacular as the star and reminiscent of Gina Torres' Zoe (Firefly).
Directing & editing decisions in terms of cuts and transitions are satisfying & imaginative in transitions between location. Pulling off combat action in a (mostly) silent film is a tall order; like turning Mission Impossible into a haiku, and yet they pulled it off.
It's amazing that John de Lancie is in this and makes us love him all the more for going with heroic passion projects. And fortunately for all of us, it's available on Monkey Kingdom Productions' Youtube channel for free viewing, at the time of this writing.
