A hero luchidor called El Superbistro (or something?) has his eye on a stripper but before he is able to declare his amorous intentions to her, she is kidnapped by a gorilla with a screw loose, who's working on behalf of Dr Satan, Bistro's arch nemesis. So from there El Superbistro has to team up with his sister Lara Croft and rescue the girl and save the world... Easy peasy!
I'm no stranger to Rob Zombie and have really enjoyed some of his work (Devil's Rejects and that Bigfoot comic, in particular) and I've even been known, on occasion, to listen to his music whilst sticking together my Airfix Panzer battalion, with a cup of tea but after watching this, I'm still none the wiser as to whether I liked it or not!
Yeah its suitably offensive, packed full of sex, violence and bad language. The jokes are plenty and story is certainly nonstop but somewhere its lacking. I'd like to put its shortcomings down to a few of the irritating characters but unfortunately I suspect the films failings are maybe more deep rooted than that and I suspect that this was/is one of those films that worked better and was a lot funnier on paper?! That said, there's a few that seem to really rate this on here, so maybe, despite getting most of the in jokes, silly scripting and sight gags, I missed the element that saved me from finding it all a bit noisy and dull!
The animation serves its purpose and fans of The Tick and Ren and Stimpy should enjoy it at least... Ultimately though, this isn't as good as it should've been.. Meaning that in an alternate universe, out there somewhere, Rob Zombie made a feature length animation of Meng and Ecker instead! Which I'll bet is a hundred times better than this!!
I'd of liked a' making of' on the dvd but didn't get one. However for the price of the disc I'm hardly complaining.
