Title: Fantasy Mission Force
Post by: Andrew on January 11, 2008, 05:16:08 PM
Max Gardener's review reminded me just how insane this old action film really is.  It has everything:  leaping Ku Klux Klan cavemen, Roman soldiers with guns, and even Abraham Lincoln.

This is a fine, perceptive review and a great/bad movie.  This movie breaks two well-known bad movie rules: 1. the humor in Hong Kong comedies is too Asian for Westerners to understand, and 2. bad comedies never succeed as enjoyable bad movies.  Watching a bald Asian man in a Scottish kilt perform an old Benny Hill routine during the training sequence works on so many levels...

The author didn't have time to go into many of the subtle touches that make this an astounding experience, like the fact that the theme song for the bloody finale is "Camptown Races", played as a dirge, on the harmonica.     

I'm shocked there are no comments yet on this film.  Is it really still unknown even among bad movie fans?  If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and check out one of the few guaranteed classic five-slime movie experiences.

this movie is 100 % percent entertainment from start till finish, second to 'Robot Monster' in terms of entertainment value. A movie that all b-grade movie lovers must watch before they die. Mate i thought some of my dreams were random- this movie has it all, perfect for a bad (great) movie night- millions of laughs, PURE GOLD!
