first of all, i rated this film a 7 but not on a normal film scale. no, i
rated it this on a cheesy so-bad-it's great level and in that respect this
movie is well done.
first of all, Pamela Anderson literally looks like a barbie doll in this so a little typecasting is evident. she delivers her lines like a cyborg at times, she has a hard time keeping her fantastically huge breasts in her outfit during the film's 'action' scenes and the plot is, believe it of not, a ripoff of Casablanca!!
the rest of the actors deliver their lines in a tongue in cheek fashion that suits the film's cheesy and overdone demeanor.
the good thing is is that much of the dialogue is unintentionally hilarious and the use of slow motion is used during action scenes to highlight some unusual things (rent it to find out what i mean.)
a classic in the so-bad-it's-good genre and a showcase for how if you're going to make a bad film, put all your heart into it and pile the cheese until it's extra high.
rating:7 (on a cheese level) 3 (on a legitimate movie scale)
