This film is of course based on the 1960’s trading card set of the same name. The film has the plot and feel of an old B movie, but a then A list cast and good special effects. The movie is slim on plot yet full of action, humor and explosions. The stockpile of big names makes me think of the disaster films that Irwin Allen did in the 1970’s. It’s not up everyone’s alley and it took me a few viewings to really warm up to the movie. Here’s a list about it.

1-To set cows on fire.

2-To fry soldiers.

3-To kill off politicians.

4-To do weird experiments fusing human and animal body parts together.

5-To terrorize people with a giant robot.

6-To get punched in the head by Jim Brown.

7-To bowl over the statues on Easter Island

8-To have their picture taken in front of spectacular buildings (see number nine)

9-To blow up up spectacular buildings once they get their picture.

10-To have their heads explode courtesy of country music.

I have watched far too many horror and sc-fi shows in my life. Now I feel the need to share this wealth of knowledge and make others suffer.

    I had forgotten about this one. I haven’t seen it since it first came out on VHS. I remember liking it but can’t remember much.

    And to perform Tom Jones songs.
