    The BALLS on this guy!

    The Wrong Roommate

    Better than Bigfoot vs. D.B. Cooper.

    Also, the guy wasn't even a roommate. Though, I guess there would be some push-back if you called it The Lodger, or The Tenant.

    Anyway, this is bad.

    ★★★

    It looks great. It - perhaps ironically - sounds great. The acting is fine, particularly from Jean Dujardin and Uggie the dog. But while the novelty of a modern silent film is fun (with all due respect to Mel Brooks SILENT MOVIE), it feels more like a stylistic exercise or a short film stretched to feature length rather than a complete work. It's so slight and breezy, and instantly forgettable.

    ★★★★

    It's the same old story. A group of orphan Taekwondo experts form a synth-pop band and fight ninja drug dealers while fending off attacks from rival bands and celebrating peace and friendship. Yet, somehow this lost 80s oddity manages to add the element of EXTREME VIOLENCE just to give it that certain je ne sais quoi. Thank goodness this bizarre action picture was rescued from obscurity.
