    Maximum Overdrive

    ★★½

    Not quite as terrible as I expected, but still far from good. The beginning is actually quite fun and entertaining: lots of action, gory kills and "wtf!" moments. But then it slows down and becomes really quite boring for a long time. Still a fairly enjoyable piece of trash cinema.
