Kinda slow in the beginning, but a decent little movie overall, made by a seemingly earnest bunch of kids — smile
I absolutely love this movie. The most French thing about it is that it’s dedicated to Alain Delon because it’s a love letter to American action and horror clearly influenced by Commando, Rambo, Aliens, The Thing from Another World, The Shining, An American Werewolf in London, Highlander, A Nightmare on Elm Street and the work of Dario Argento (especially Inferno), but is entirely its own thing.
While there is occasional humor, nothing is played for laughs. The overall atmosphere is…
The Santo movies were on all the time when I was kid, and while I don’t really remember any specific ones, I got a kick out of them in general. This one hit the nostalgia button hard for me, but it has a lot of things that I enjoy watching: sexy women, spy-fi, ridiculous action, a brawl every few minutes. Essentially this is like the '60s Batman, if you take it as such, you’ll get a kick out of it — smile
