Guilty Pleasures
23 August 2015 | by rbellachSee all my reviews

I don't know what happened to Albert Pyun between this movie and Cyborg, but I like *this* Albert Pyun. This one made a post-apocalyptic/film-noir/comedy/adventure. (The closest comparison I have is Circuitry Man minus the romance and robots. Does that help clear things up? Probably not.) Featuring wanna-be 40s detectives, 50s greasers, 60s cannibal hippies, sociopathic 70s disco kiddies, and 80s slam-dancin' punks. Michael Dudikoff, playing the Jerry Lewis-style comic relief. Sue Saad, as a Pat Benatar for the Rocky Horror crowd. George Kennedy as the b-movie, small-role-character-actor king of kings. Giant rats. Giant rats! Only near the end, in an overlong, mostly slo-mo shootout climax, did I get hints of the Pyun of Cyborg. But all is well with a swing-dance finale! I... I really liked this movie.
