[Johnny sees Sid by the refrigerator holding a pack of frozen beef]

Enjoyable unambitious light entertainment!
31 May 2018 | by LindaviusSee all my reviews

Do you need bad taste to get through the show? - Clearly!

Is it trashy, and completely unpretentious? - For sure!

Is it a cheap production ? - By every standard; - comes close to some Carpenter movies ( "They live", et al)

But, tell me, is it better than the original? - By miles!

  • The simple twist, to make the angry and unlikeable prototypical anti-hero the hero, in company with the dry, yet not all-too subtle, humour, really saves it.
To be honest: For me, the simple good- vs. evil plot, influenced strongly by George Lucas, of the original, connected with its terrible 80s presentation, was always completely unbearable. So. the Ace Degenerate certainly deserves his revenge!
