Movie Reviews

Come on Morons!!
Tortured Soul | Manchester, UK | 11/12/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'd usually only rate this movie with 3 stars but as a load of thickos (probably big-budget Hollywood cgi fans) have slated it, I am giving it 5 stars.

The plot is fairly original and the setting of the film in a futuristic and decadent Russia is both interesting and clever. I'm not going to describe what happens in the movie - so go watch it!! That is unless you are a moron....if that's the case, go watch 'Hulk' or something."
Wildly maligned!
Wayne A. | Belfast, Northern Ireland | 08/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sorry, this is an extremely imaginative film with at-times stunning visuals and a fun plot. The director is Eastern European and it shows--he cribs American film style like a master but mixes it only as an ex-Commie could. Hauer is, as always, solidly entertaining, the villain is villainous, and the depiction of the future decadent Russian society probably more dead-on than anyone would care to admit. There's a lot of sexy nudity in this and it's not gratuitous, it's just decadent. Don't let this film sink because a few killjoys don't find what they like in it!"
Imagine Russia as Fort Apache circa 2012

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Rutger Hauer plays John Wade, a black market game smuggler, who meets a fatal end in a Soviet statuary graveyard. His partner and assassin is Merrick, a violent gangster. Russian authorities discover Wade's body and reincarnate him despite the gunshot to his head. Please fantasize the Frankenstein castle as a an old Moscow apartment store and slim nurses dressed in red who kiss, lift his injured head so they can drop it on the hard bed.
It seems most young women in this post-Soviet future wear little or no clothes. Yvonne Scio's role is as Wade's: 1-late ex-girlfriend 2-a tough-but loveable whore 3-6 multi wigged variations of 1 & 2. Hazard a guess that Ms Scio plays many roles due to the production budget.
Merrick's partners are the Trioka. They seem to marinate in a huge Turkish pool in a Moscow somehow caught in an extended winter night. They own the military and police. They watch Most Wanted on giant Blade Runner style video screens; the poor people all own AK-47s. They chase Wade cos he's wanted.
Gee, what else can I say? Imagine enjoying Yvonne in states of undress as the reason for the rating.
As a used dvd you can watch Dacascos before the excellent "Brotherhood Of The Wolf"-another reason for the rating! Brotherhood of the Wolf - Director's Cut (Two-Disc Special Edition)
