Movie Reviews

Hot babes and lots of action
Bud Bundy | MN USA | 07/16/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I used to watch this, just because it was on before Jack of all Trades. I kind of got to "like" it, I guess, it had hot women running around in hot outfits. The stories were about these three girls who live underground in the far away future; the surface of the planet is ruled by evil robots, and androids are lurking underground. So these girls are always fighting against the bad guys. The stories are more or less silly, the special effects aren't all that great BUT I have to give these folks points for originality. They had some pretty cool gadgets, like a computer you wore on your wrist that could project a 3-D holographic image of various things.

All in all, it was cheesy, silly, had a lot of action, and I guess I mentioned all the hot babes. Okay, the only reason anyone would watch this is for the babes, but, that certainly sets it above all the equally stupid whows without hot babes, so there you go."
In the year 2525 women fight, just to survive.

"Love the premise: a stripper goes in for breast enlargement surgery only to wake up to find it is now the year 2525. Cleopatra has been in cryo-stasis all this time and now serves as the comic relief for a "charlie's angels" group fighting robots in the future.... what's not to love about that? Cleopatra is very cute, plus you have the chick from Mutant X, and the gal from Serenity (and had a recurring guest character on Angel and Alias). The special effects are weak... but Sci-Fi is like pizza.... even when it's bad, it's still pretty good. This started off as a split timeslot with that Bruce "Ash" Campbell show called of Jack of something or other.... Bruce Campbell is a god. I've rambled enough."
A great sci-fi romp of the far future!

"At last finally released in the United States, we can once again view the completely entertaining adventures of Hel, Cleo, Sarge and their android assistant Mauser as they battle to free Earth from the conquering "machine like" floating Baileys. Cleo, a part-time stripper and Glendale Community College student, wakes up in the year 2525 from a long frozen sleep after her breast enhancement operation. Impressed with her wile and wits, Hel and Sarge quickly decide to make her a team member, performing different missions on the unspoiled surface, and far into the depths of the underground city, populated with different cultures, a medley of strange mutant creatures, and the ever present Bailey infiltrator "betrayer" robots. Some of their best enemies include the clown-like but interestingly complex nemesis "Creegan", and the beautiful psychic murderess Raina. And, amongst all the different challenges our heroines face, we hear the mysterious voice of "Voice" that speaks to team leader Hel via her implant, and controls the resistance underground movement intended to eventually free the surface from the ever present subjugation of the Baileys.

Distributed amongst 3 DVDs, we find all 28 "half hour" Episodes, NOT 30 as printed in error on the packaging.

1) Quest for Firepower 2) Creegan 3) Flying Lessons
4) Mind Games 5) Home 6) Rescue
7) Run Cleo Run 8) Choices 9) Perceptions
10) Trial and Error 11) Double 12) The Last Stand
13) Hel and High Water I 14) Hel and High Water II 15) The Watch
16) Baby Boom 17) Brain Drain 18) Mauser's Day Out
19) Reality Check 20) The Pod Whisperer 21) Out of Body
22) Juggernaut Down! 23) Truth be Told 24) In Your Boots
25) The Soldier Who Fell From Grace 26) No Thanks for the Memories
27) Noir or Never 28) The Voice

Bonus materials include an "Earth 2" episode, Deleted Scenes, Outtakes, and Special Effect and Stunts.

However, let the buyer beware of the words "MUSIC MAY DIFFER FROM TELEVISED VERSION" found in small print on the back of the outer box, for they have modified this region 1 release! Take for example my favorite episode "Run Cleo Run", which includes a great beginning scene of Sarge dancing on stage to a group of mutant gangsters. The fantastic song "A Girl Like You" by Edwyn Collins fires off and the show begins, observed remotely by Cleo, Hel and Mauser. "Shake that money maker!" exclaims Cleo. But on this DVD they replaced "A Girl Like You" with a lame song completely inappropriate for the situation. Why didn't they leave it alone? I can't believe they actually PAID someone to "improve" this episode! I am very disappointed. Who knows how many other episodes they played with? Anyway, please realize that this North American release does not contain the complete original sound track. For those interested in a sound track with the original songs, I suggest the first British DVD release. However, you must then unfortunately contend with a different region and the PAL formatting instead of NTSC.

In general, I recommend this release. The humor, the action, and the characters all make this a thoroughly enjoyable science fiction series. In fact, why it got cancelled in the first place still amazes me! But it did, and we now have only these few episodes to enjoy. You get them all in this one boxed set, but without original musical content I just can't give it the 5 stars it would normally deserve.
Sci Fi Action
R. Wolfe | Philadelphia, PA | 06/22/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This series was a little bit of cheese, a little bit of creative innovation, a lot of sci fi, a lower budget than you'd hope for (but really squeezed to make the most of things) and overall, great fun.

The best innovation this show had was that all the bad guys didn't have to miss the good guys all the time when firing hail after hail of energy blasts at them from all angles. The good guys (good girls, actually) had personal energy shields that would deplete over time and only then would you really have to duck every shot or hope they still missed you all day long. (Why on earth hasn't every sci fi action series snaked this idea and run with it, too?)

Anyway, there is a fair amount of humor that really works and some actual hard-core sci fi here and there. Mostly it was all about the action, though. Cheesy villians more often than not, but the over-arching enemy presence throughout was a race of huge, crazy-looking robots that ruled the surface of Earth in the far future, which were pretty cool, but not around in every episode.

Eventually, as the story went from half-hour shows to hour-longs, the writing got better, or maybe there was more room for story when the action quotient didn't have to be jacked up so high. Don't get me wrong, this was no epic story and it was never going to be, even though it got cancelled before its time (there is quite a cult following and more episodes were written and offered up on some website at some point, though never actually filmed).

If it comes out at a decent price for your budget, and you're into a fast-paced, light-weight sci fi romp, grab it up. Oh yeah, the main characters are athletic female actors who have all shown up in higher-profile projects since this and all fall into the category of "hot" . . . but that's actually not the best reason to watch."
