5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute BLAST!, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manborg DVD (DVD)
"Manborg" for those who haven't seen it is a comedic spoof similar to "Slags" but dare I say far more superior. With neon colours, laser blasts, glowing streets and buildings, smashing sound effects, amazing makeup, great villains, clever one-liners, awesomely 80's synth score, instantly likable characters, spot-on humour, great story arc, fun battles etc.. There are definitely a few nods to the genre for fans to catch (Doctor Who, Eliminators, Tron, The Prisoner, Terminator, Robocop, Re-Animator, Mortal Kombat) but the writing and execution are so well done that it very intelligently incorporates those elements AND retains a wonderful individuality. Manborg is an intentionally campy, surprisingly funny, action packed world of it's own.

You probably already know the synopsis and have seen all of the hype but it really is hard to imagine the creativity and heart that this film brings to the table until you kick up your "expensive silver boots" and enjoy the hoverbike ride. Astron-6 are a force and Steven Kostanski & friends destroy any worries you may have about those beloved VHS straight to video Sci-fi/Action movies being gone forever. Get this DVD... you won't be disappointed. The extra features and packaging definitely make this one worth buying. I'm also hoping that the advert at the end for a movie called "Bio-Cop" is not just a tease because it's too good an idea for just a trailer. It's a refreshing watch and I'm excited to see what Astron-6 come up with next.
