Campy, Stylish B-movie fun
on 7 February 2016
It's... So beautiful. A B-movie masterpiece, very tongue in cheek, and it's pretty darn entertaining. The characters are fabulously ridiculous- From an Aussie named 'Justice', A very oddly overdubbed Kung Fu master named '#1 man', An obligatory manic pixie dream girl to the gloriously nerdy looking Manborg himself. It's rather obviously shot on a tight budget, yet it remains visually interesting all the way through. Either for budgetary or time reasons, some plot lines are rushed and the main characters are under-developed, but interestingly this seems to have caused an anomaly- 'The baron' (A villain commander) is the most emotionally developed in the whole movie and the results of this are unintentionally hilarious.
it's just a mesh of mildly stylish, camp B-movie goodness. I didn't expect as much from this movie, It's definitely skirts the line of a genuinely good B-movie and something 'So bad it's good', but the interesting visuals, cheesy dialogue, bizarre overall plot and perhaps somewhat unintentionally hilarious cast of characters make sure it comes out on top. Absolutely well worth a watch.
