    Chopping Mall

    ★★½

    Robots in a mall killing people.

    The opening montage is awesome. A fun way to introduce the mall and its many denizens. The conceit is goofy fun, and the various action scenes are amusing.

    The writing in between is very poor, and the whole thing feels undeveloped. But all the actors are chewing the scenery and there is a oner that shows 4 couples pre- and post- coitus on various beds in a furniture store. That shot was too good for this movie.

    So much to analyze here and think about, but I feel like it's territory that was done better and more entertainingly in his previous films.

    Still, he's a weird genius and I love him.
