Movie Reviews

Stink Bomb
Kevin Lane | Norfolk, VA United States | 01/02/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I heard through the grapevine that this was a Japanese spoof of disaster movies and cross-cultural misconceptions. I think it's more of a spoof of a movie - something some guys with no movie-making experience put together. At first I wondered maybe if something was lost in translation, but it's just so ... uninteresting. There was a good premise here and plenty of opportunity for satire, but everything is so stiff and wooden - the acting is horrible, the dialogue is horrible, the plot is awkward and sort of series of absurd sketches (American actors out of work and performing in Japanese bars, foreign leaders kowtowing to the PM of Japan, the eccentric scientist trying to explain it all) loosely tied against the end of the world. The stereotypes aren't funny - not out of an aversion to all things politically incorrect - they're just not funny. Don't waste your time on this one."
An awful "get even" film.

"If you're blessed with a twisted sense of humor, and enjoy really bad tongue-in-cheek disaster movies, then this is the flick for you. It's a parody of Japan Sinks (1975) and it's remake (2006) both made for TV. The premise is, "Every land mass, except for Japan, begins to sink below sea level. The rest of the world is clamoring for survival. How many survivors can, or will, Japan accept? Who manages to make it out alive? What is your threshold for terrible acting, awful CG, and suspension of disbelief? Well, I did warn you."
