1.0 out of 5 stars DANIEL IN THE DINOSAUR'S DEN January 12, 2005
Oh, my, this is one bad movie. Martial arts hero Daniel Bernhardt is simply awful as a "runaway" from the future who comes back to Earth, which his people think is really "heaven." There he joins up with a renegade nun and some hood boys to take on dinosaur trackers and cyborgs who have come to take him back. Special effects are atrocious, the whole cast is terrible and this movie is a complete waste of time. Avoid at all costs.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 starz for the MST3K episode! December 19, 2002
By Paul
Format:VHS Tape
In March 2001, I became a loyal fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000. (The first episode I saw was "Puma Man") Well, the first time I saw this horrible film on MST3K, I nearly died laughing! It is probably the most hilarious episode of MST3K in their final season. (Great commentary by Mike and the 'bots) The main synopsis of this putrid filth on film is that these dinos with exploding collers are sent to the future to kill humans and something else involving cyborgs. A Jeane-Claude Van Damme look-alike named Runaway is sent back in time to present day LA and meets up with a prostitute/druggie turned nun who lives in the house of the obese. Runaway then ends up in a crate factory where he confronts this cyborg who actually looks like an insane version of Alan Jackson (Tom Servo makes a point of this) They kickbox each other in a badly choreographed fight, which they end up doing again at the end where Runaway's shirt falls off of him (This scene was the stinger for the MST3K episode) The dinosaurs obviously look plasic, the story goes no where fast, the acting is some of the worst I have ever seen, the pathetic attempt at suspence and drama just falls flat on its face and the cyborg dude is a dumb.... On the big plus side, the stupidy of this film offered tons of hilarious dialogue for Mike and the 'bots and now is one of my favorite episodes. If you have to see this movie, you have to see the MST3K version! I promise you, you won't regret it. (However, for all you MSTies out there, you'll have to catch it on the Sci-Fi channel and tape it because so far it is not available on video or DVD)

3.0 out of 5 stars So bad,it's good?? It's true!! October 4, 2004
I first saw this movie by way of MST3K and I couldn't believe how silly and funny it was-unintentionally so,of course.There are no top-notch actors in this,but plenty of bad effects though..No budget,bad acting,bad dialogue,zero effects-everything you want in a bad movie!! Recommended for lovers of bad movies...See the MST3K version first,if you can,then get this...

1.0 out of 5 stars So bad it's entertaining!! August 11, 2005
WOW! That's all I can say after watching this ridiculous movie. This one is right up there (or down there, depending on how you look at it) with R.O.T.O.R. and Supersonic Man when it comes to the pantheon of bad movies. A few good things about this movie. I learned that Los Angeles is the cardboard box capitol of the world. The boxes are everywhere in this film. I learned why L.A. has problems with drought and has to get its water from northern California.....the water system there is built out of wooden pallets!! WHen the "actors" venture into the sewers to kill the foam rubber dinosaurs the sewers are built of wooden pallets. It probably leaks all the drinking water right back into the ground! Bad acting, horrible special effects and the worst knock off of the police station scene in the first Terminator movie I have ever seen. If you like bad movies this stinker is for you!

1.0 out of 5 stars Idiocy. September 7, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Have you ever seen this movie on television before? I saw it on Mystery Science Theater 3000, and I pray that this where it shall only be seen. Why do people produce movies like this? Of course, there exist a few known answers to this question. One is money, another is the intentional stupidity on the part of the filmmakers, i.e. trying to make it ridiculous. But "Future War" doesn't seem to belong to these two branches. No audience will be satisfied by this, not even Action movie buffs, so the prospect of monetary gain can be thrown out the window. It can not be intentionally stupid either, for those kinds of movies are absurd from the first scene to the last, and this movie seems to have scant attempts at human drama. So what is the excuse? An Accident? Good intentions that went horribly wrong? A bad experiment in trying to connect [bad] science fiction with other genres like Action and Drama? I suppose the best answer is that there isn't one. If you don't take my word for it, just listen to the brilliant story, such as it is: A man aptly named Runaway (Daniel Bernhardt), who looks, speaks, fights, and growls like actor Jean-Claude Van Damme, escapes from his desolate "future", accidentally finding solace in our modern era. He is befriended by a former-prostitute-turned-nun who helps the poser learn English. She then listens to Runaway's bizarre tales, primarily concerning his "futuristic origin". Naturally, she does not believe Runaway at first, but it is rather difficult to dismiss his claims after being chased by what can only be described as Dinosaurs with exploding metal collars. The duo join forces with what can only be described as the local gang and set out to demolish the Saurians once and for all. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Come for the dinosaurs, stay for the laughs! September 4, 2003
This film was featured in an episode of "Mystery Science Theater 3000," and one viewing will show you why. The plot is simple: a runaway slave (Bernhardt) escapes from a spaceship to Earth, pursued by his cyborg masters and their dinosaur trackers. On the way he (literally) runs into a novice nun who is a former prostitute and drug addict. She helps him hide from the hunters, and he helps her sort out a crisis of faith. Along the way there are bad special effects, cheesy forced-perspective dinosaur puppets (held close to the camera, they seem massive), and diabolical acting.
In spite of it all, this movie manages to transcind itself and become funny. The fight sequences are a riot, and the special effects are as good for laughs as anything "Dark Shadows" or the original "Star Trek" ever produced. And all in all, the storyline isn't any worse than that of "Jurassic Park" or "Star Wars"; the biggest failing is the low budget and too much reliance on fight scenes to carry the action. If you're looking for a film to pass the time or entertain friends, this one will do the trick ... especially for fans of the "Soap Opera Game" or Mystery Science Theater watchers who want to see the original movie uncut.
