(gb) wrote: Dette er litt av en referanse-fest! Karakterer heter Freddy, Argento osv. Fredag den 13., Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Psycho, Wolfman, Dracula, Frankenstein blir nevnt. Noen flere ganger. Med nods til motorsagmassakren, Hellraiser, klovne-skrekk, Saw og stort sett all annen skrekk. Men 5-6 av karakterene er filmgeeks, og film blir diskutert flere ganger, s det er ikke rart referansene sitter lst. Snn filmmessig er den helt grei, ikke alt for billig preg, noe drlig skuespill, descent kills og gore, en tvist hist og her, helt okei affr. <- det er svensk tror jeg.
(nl) wrote: In order to actually appreciate this movie, you first cannot take it seriously as a horror movie, it's just not a horror movie. It's more of a black comedy. Cripsin Glover provides the main character(s) and does so awkwardly, startlingly and hilariously. This is a must see for horror fans.

(br) wrote: Pretty average supernatural thriller set around an abandoned village in the Spanish countryside, which was flooded 40 years ago in an effort to contain the evil forces at work within.There are some okay effects here and there, but it never really grabbed me completely, thus the middling score.Rental?
(jp) wrote: Ouch! I was expecting a romantic comedy! It was painful to watch, there was no charm, no funny quirky aspects of it, and no hilarious incident. This film was cliche in all the wrong ways! I can't even count it as romantic. The writing was terrible, the acting had no choice to follow suit. But I still love Michael Vartan-- now and always.

(kr) wrote: I could probably make the case that this film is the 90s-est movie ever made. It takes itself way too seriously, the score is ridiculously dramatic, and it has a playing-in-the-snow montage. Plus, Dennis Miller is in it. Too bad it's kind of a terrible movie. I would have loved to have loved it.

(br) wrote: Hoo-Boy, What a Mess... :=8PWacky cheapie that is part "Plan 9", part "Mars Needs Women", in which Dr. Evil and Cleopatra decide to invade the earth; fortunately, they get stopped by "Frank", the Frankenstein robot-astronaut who is film's hero with 1/2 face, and the annoying tendency to throttle innocent people randomly. Dr. Evil and Cleopatra send their evil bald henchmen armed with hair dryers to abduct bikini-clad females for "breeding purposes". They make them lie on a board, drape cheap curtains over them, and pull them away for "electro-purification". Mull, a shaggy, snaggle-tooth monster, is also on hand, and is the titular space monster for "Frankenstein" to fight. Frank blows himself up, along with the evil bald aliens, and Cape Kennedy and Puerto Rico and Korea are all saved. Various pointless chunks of raw, oozing stock footage are spliced together in a vain attempt to insinuate that this film has some sort of a plot. The stock footage ranges from Korean War battles to, old NASA footage, to Civilian Air Patrol film strips, all cut up and sprinkled liberally throughout the film, like so much salt and pepper. In fact, stock footage makes up a good 50% of the moovie, and it does constitute an improvement over actually paying attention to the story. Much of the film involves the "actors" stumbling about in the bushes at night, so you can't actually see what they do. In fact, the film is as murky as a septic tank, and sports some of the worst post-production (looping, editing)this cow has ever seen. Toss in some rockin' 60's surf moosic, and you've got an almoost passable plate of schlock. First-time Director Frank Gaffney never directed again, and the world breathed a sigh of relief. Marilyn Hanold("The Brain that Wouldn't Die")plays the ditsy, Cleopatra-like Princess Marcuzan, who wears a hat made of kleenex and cardboard. Lou Cutell("Pee Wee's Big Adventure") plays Nadir, the effette, smiling bald dwarf who ogles the stolen babes. Long-time bit actor James Karen("Poltergeist", "Invaders from Mars") plays Dr. Adam Steele, the bland, un-appealing scientist who creates Frank & goes off to find him when Frank gets his face turned into a tuna melt. This film is a mumbling, stuttering, incoherent, indigestible pile of celluloid that only professional devotees of schlock-theater cud love, so says the MooCow. As ol' Princess Marcuzan says, "This is clearly a failure". You said it, babe. :=8P

(nl) wrote: A family friendly fantasy adventure that improves on the novel's mundane setting and constant to-ing and fro-ing. The story is much tighter and one event leads logically to the next with all the unnecessary details cut out. Dustfinger as played by Paul Bettany is much more appealing and sympathetic than the whiny bastard of the book and the climax is also more spectacular and realised in a coherent structure that makes Meggie truly heroic. The novel sort of petered out because the author wanted to write more books, but luckily the film ends on a satisfying high. Helen Mirren is also great fun as a much more feisty and not as useless Aunt Eleanor. The use of CGI is kept to a minimum, but is suitably fantastic and Andy Serkis and the actors playing his henchmen also do a lot to make the flat Capricorn and villains on the page come to life.

These kids are supposed to be some sort of cadets, but it's basically a beach full of pricks. As the film goes on, more and more of the kids do things you just want to see them die for. They follow their deluded leader and do awful things without a care in the world.Getty is the only likable kid in the whole bunch. The back cover of the DVD says it ends with two groups going to war, which is a complete lie. It's everyone against Getty. They killed the only two other people still with him far before the final attack.And that final attack. Blah. He is tipped off that they are going to come hunting him the next day so he does what? Falls asleep? He didn't even try to defend himself. And then he comes upon the beach and clearly this is how Jurassic Park 3 found it's super let down ending.Then we don't even get to see the army of little jerks get theirs? I mean you can only think some kind of justice hit them when they got home, but you really did want at least two of those bastards to get theirs on the island.Despite all the violence, the movie really kind of drug for a mere 90 minutes.I liked the aspect of seeing how human beings revert to awful things when pushed, but the acting wasn't good enough to really care about anyone that isn't the lead character.
