Cheese. The key to enjoying this movie is not take it seriously! Don't
expect great art! It's based on a comic book, it's got guns and 'splosions
and Pamela Anderson pre-reduction. Waddaya want, Ingmar Bergman? It
entertained me, and I didn't have to use my brain once. I even bought a
copy, it sits on the shelf between "Brief Encounter" and "Apocalypse Now".
Its miles better than the dreadful "The Mummy" or the unspeakably bad
Okay, have a review. The plot is a shameless rip-off of Casablanca and makes no effort to hide it. It made me laugh, has some great dialogue, and is never actually slow. It's OBVIOUS that the cast and crew had a brilliant time making it, and that really shows on screen. Steve Railsback is brilliant, as is the uniformly excellent Udo Kier.
And its got guns and 'splosions and Pam!
