A worthwhile bad movie
on 27 December 2008
I love bad movies like this, because theres a geniune labour of love thats gone into this film. As in effort made, not just a cheap cash in but the pride and joy or some dilirous film makers.
First up Troll 2 is no relation to Troll, the film was actually called Goblins until the film makers decided to call it Troll 2 to hopefully intrege fans of another film by an entirely different group called Troll.
The film itself isn't all that enjoyable, as it doesn't make enough sense for you to understand what is going on. This means a lot of WTF moments and very little intreging ones. As such you can't get into this film, but you fill the void outside of it, paying attention to it but only when something visually dumb is happening on screen.
Regardless theres many so bad their funny scenes to this film, laughably over the top dialogue and questionable character motives. But the film's conclusion is very breif after a lot of pointless build ups meaning its not even rewardingly funny.
Even so theres a brilliant sense of tackiness and talentlessness that runs through the entire production, from the terrible special effects to the plot, it's good fun but as bad movies go it doesn't really hold you intrest.
Try Manos Hands of Fate instead if your after a terrible but hilarious movie.
