As a big fan of bad movies I have derived much enjoyment from those glorious films that fall under the category of the 'so bad it's good' variety. Directors who consistently produce such joyfully inept works include the infamous Godfrey Ho and Bruno Mattei, both of whom have a vast filmography to their names on account of churning out craptaculars on the cheap and whose films I have a very special fondness for.
Let's get one thing straight though, although the principle is indeed subjective, I feel the 'so bad it's good' term is far too frequently and inappropriately used, especially by many reviewers on this site.
A classic case in point is the film in question here. Make no mistake, this film is entirely and spectacularly crap.....but not in any 'positive' way whatsoever. Interminably boring throughout and not helped any by risible acting and hopelessly executed 'action' scenes, this is a pretty much unwatchable affair. So bad was this in fact that I couldn't even watch it in its entirety in a single sitting.
I can think of only two good things to say about this to be quite honest; One is the always welcome face and larger than life presence of Fred Williamson and the other is that none other than Mark Gregory plays the villainous lead. Sadly both actors are wasted in their respective roles though but it is at least a speck of light in an otherwise murky void.
For true connoisseurs of bad movies (enjoyable ones that is) skip this rancid ordure and instead revel in the works of the previously mentioned directors who really know how to make good quality crap.
