By far, the funniest movie I've seen in my life

"Words cannot describe just how (unintentionally) humorous this movie is. It gets better with each showing.
See Harold Sakata, James Bond's 'Odd Job', chased to the death through a car wash!
See the incredible cinematography, where nighttime shots are clear as day (because they're shot during the day!)
See Shatner outsmarted by a little girl!
Don't take it too seriously and you'll have a blast. Best experienced with some pizza and beer."

"This movie is far more important than the summary may lead one to believe, it also centers on the reality of those who come from violent broken homes and childhoods tend to repeat the cycle, and on and on it goes, it was a very good movie for its time and a stunning social commentary on the results of child abuse to say the least... Watch this movie and learn from it, Shatner turns in a stellar performance and message for us all to wake up to and does it vividly including flashbacks and all. This is serious stuff."
Shatner at his worst

"The early seventies were not kind to William Shatner. Typecast as Captain Kirk and briefly homeless after his wife divorced him and got everything, Shatner has admitted that he took any role offered him. This certainly explains Impulse, a horrible thriller that is nevertheless a must-see for bad movie fans.
Filmed in Florida on a very low budget, Shatner stars as Matt Stone, a gigolo/con man who was forced to kill his mother's abusive boyfriend in self-defense at an early age. Matt wears the loudest, tackiest, ugliest clothes imaginable and spends his days swooning lonely, loaded widows. He's also a killer who is fond of sucking on his pinky at emotional moments. Matt soon meets Ann Moy, an attractive widow who has her hands full with her rebellious daughter Tina. Matt and Ann fall for each other and Tina hates Matt already, but when she finds out that Matt's a killer, the film turns into a battle of wits between Matt and Tina. Guess who wins?
Shatner's not the only familiar face embarrassing himself here. Veteran character actress Ruth Roman plays Julia, a rich widow (and Ann's best friend) who crosses paths with Matt. Harold Sakata (Oddjob from Goldfinger) pops up as Matt's partner in crime/boss/pimp/we aren't really sure, who is chased by Matt through a car wash in the film's funniest sequence.
But it's Shatner who steals the show. With his overacting in full force and bolstered by amateur directing and a laughable story, Impulse is a must-see for fans of bad cinema."
