This was better than I anticipated, but not as good as I had hoped.
I followed the making of the movie since the premise was announced online. I subscribed to their updates and got caught up in the hype whenever they showed production stills and updates.
Then I started seeing reviews, and not a lot of them where positive. I think these helped adjust my expectations a bit.
The story is a very straightforward one (moon nazis want to come…
Thought it was a very effective, very enjoyable, FUN action film. It takes its time to set up the action, but once it starts, it cruises along quite well. Stormare is a pleasure to watch, as always. Arnold's performance is ok, I wasn't expecting much more than this. I will always have a soft spot for Johnny Knoxville's zaniness, from his Jackass days, so that was fine too.
This is a horrible movie. It's also one of my all-time faves. The whole cartoonish affair (made by Hanna-Barbera, it plays like a fourth-rate Scooby Doo rip-off) is the birthplace of some of the most ridiculous dialogue I have ever memorized.
To this day, it's one of those movies I make my friends watch with me. None of them has hated me for it yet (at least not in public).
