"My friend and I like to browse the video rental stores for movies that we think would be excellent targets to poke fun at. Sci Fighters. What a stupid name for a movie! We just had to try this one out. Unfortunately for us this movie wasn't all that bad. The beginning was very weird, though. Prisoners are placed on the moon in a Lunar prison. The movie shows two prisoners standing at a table with power tools--apparently prisoners do labor of some sort--when suddenly they start attacking each other with saws. Prisoner A--Adriann Dunn (why does he have a girl's name?) kills prisoner B and then tries to make it look like an accident. Then, for some stupid, unknown reason he takes a screwdriver and stabs himself in the arm. But oh, apparently prisoner B isn't dead yet and some weird tentacle thing springs out and attacks Dunn's arm. Watch out for this scene where the detective is asking this nurse where someone is. The nurse says "BEHIND you." But then the detective turns to his RIGHT, because that's where the guy is. And I can't believe that it takes the good guys forever to realize that all it takes is a Bic lighter to destroy the methane-breathing menace. There are so many ways that they could have made this movie funnier. "Mommy, that man has a potty mouth." or they could have tried to thwart the methane menace with air freshener. So many possibilities. But like I say, the movie's not that bad. Worth a rental, no more."
A Good Futuristic Film
(4 out of 5 stars)
"If anyone is swayed by the almost funny title of "Sci-Fighters," then they are wrong in not seeing this film. Former WCW World Heavyweight Champion "Rowdy" Roddy Piper plays a very good part in Cameron, a part not unlike his character in "They Live", another cult favorite of mine.This film is for anyone who likes futuristic adventures like "Screamers", "Blade Runner," or "RoboCop". It has some of the best visual effects in a film with the backgrounds and the fight scenes. Although you can see where they dubbed some of the foul language in the establishing scenes, it is a good film for the cult film arcives."
I'll Take This "B" Movie Over A Coma Anyday

"I've seen hundreds of Sci Fi/Horror movies over the years. This is one of those you'll wonder whether you've watched it or not a few years down the road. You just can't remember.
All in all, I figure it's still better to watch a so-so Sci Fi/Horror movie than "Dances With Wolves" or "Evita". This movie will end up being non-memorable, but it's preferable to being in a coma. "
An OK sci-fi thriller

"My dad loves this movie but I dunno. Good action, reasonable acting and a great plot makes this worth checking out."
Low Budget is NOT at Fault...
South Beach Diet | 07/05/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)
"...this is simply a movie with an illogical premise, a poor story, some weak acting, and predictability at every turn. Yes, it's a low-budget flick that features actors who are not big names in Hollywood, but the problem is the writing (flunk!), the special effects (errrr...), and the lack of any characters to really care about. Oh, the lead actress is hot. Not hot enough that one would care if she lives or dies; looks alone do not make a good actress.
Had this big a big-budget picture, THEN it would have been a bad movie with well-known actors and cool special effects. That is, nothing could save this one from being lousy: they made the Titanic of all films, and down she went...
Use your money wisely: buy SOME OTHER low budget bad movie."
