I have seen a few bad films in my time, but this one takes the prize. I'm actually struggling to find words to describe how bad it is. Here are a few basic comments ...

a) The transfer from TV film to DVD is appalling, with grainy images and wobbly soundtrack.
b) The structure of the 'film' is awful, with the worst possible sort of voice-over for the first 20+ minutes of excrutiatingly boring scene-setting. And the voice-overs continue all the way through as well.
c) The acting is somewhere below the level that would be expected of an infant school pantomime. It is truly diabolical.
d) To disguise how dated the film is, a hi-tech screen has been added for the menu, but thereafter you are into the world of clunky switches, flashing lights, whirring machines and scientific gobbledegook dreamed up in the late 1970's before anyone really knew how computers were going to evolve.

The basic idea is of a lone man on an unidentified island watching the history of the world and its eventual takeover by an army of clones. Naturally, Hitler makes a return alongside a megalomnaniac who has cloned him and who goes on to proclaim a "war-less takeover by my clones". After about 20 minutes (during which time the lone man has wandered a lone island and watched snippets of world history on his lone computer) the main story starts, but is constantly interrupted to go back to the man in the cave to show him watching the film that you have just been watching - then it returns to the film.

And does the film end with an apocalyptic war or shots of drone-clones taking over the world? --- No it ends with the lone man wandering off across the hills of his lone island without any explanation of who he is, why he is there, how he got there or what happens next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ham plrasure. 19 April 2014
By Matt Y - Published on Amazon.com
Classis 70s ham extravaganza. Vaughn is pure entertainment, and very much a man for his era. Deffo worth a watch.
1.0 out of 5 stars Mow the lawn instead 12 Sep 2013
By BristolApp - Published on Amazon.com
Mow the lawn, take the dog for a walk, pick the lint out from between your toes...ANYTHING EXCEPT WATCH THIS MOVIES. It's absurdly stupid...Do not waste your time on this.
1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the time 9 Sep 2013

I never finished watching the video so I will not comment on the actors and their roles. However, the movie moved very slowly so as to not hold my interest. The quality of the video was extremely poor to the point that even if the movie had kept my interest I wouldn't have stayed with it.
1.0 out of 5 stars Bad and poor quality 7 April 2012
By Willard Wagener - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is not just a bad movie (especially since it spent the first 20+ minutes with some narration and videos of the whole "war is bad" stuff of the 70's), but the actual DVD is the worst "quality" (and I use that term loosely here) I have ever seen. Grainy and blurry, like watching a 30 year old, deteriorating VHS copy. Even going so far as to have a gap in the movie at around 32 minutes in!
Over all, this is another bad movie from a terrible time period for sci-fi (pre-Star Wars). Giving this movie a 1 star is being way too kind - it deserves no stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Older, definitely, but interesting. 13 Oct 2012
By Clark Weber - Published on Amazon.com
This movie was no doubt an older film made with a different though process from movies today. It has a different idea to it that I had never given thought before and did it very well.
