As MST3k is sort of a show within a show within a movie format, I like to review the sections of each episode in order to give it a final rating.

The movie: If you are wondering why you never heard of this movie even though it was released in the late 90's, don't. There are films from the 50's that have better special effects (and acting, and directing, etc.) With this movie you get dinosaurs that are 20 feet tall in one scene then 5 feet tall in the next; the nicest smoking, swearing nun that used to be a drug running prostitute; and several fights in a factory that apparently ships air in their boxes. Need more proof that this is a great bad movie: per Wikipedia, the movie crew predicted that this film would be shown on MST3k - while they were still shooting.

Host Segments: The first few are not that great. But Pearl and Crow save the show with some really funny skits at the end.

Riffs: Constant and steady wins the race so kudos to Mike and the bots. There were several good riffs and I loved Mike's presentation during the ending credits of the movie.

Overall: Bad movie, funny segments, and funny riffing. Not a top 10 classic but one of the better episodes.

Some movies are so bad that even Mike and the Bots have a tough time making them entertaining. This is of "those" movies. The crew of the S.O.L. make a valiant effort, but this one is just too much of a stinker for them to overcome. I love all things MST3K though, so I can't fault them for this train wreck of a film. They do manage to get a few solid laughs out of the premise of Future War, which is a monstrous mish-mash of poor man's Jean Claude Van Damme action stars, cyborgs, box kicking, dinosaur cyborgs, prostitutes turned nuns, and fat guys with guns. Honestly, that premise should be AMAZING , but sadly it is not. Watch this one while heavily intoxicated or after a recent head trauma and you might just enjoy it. Otherwise...see it at your own risk.

Even with the gang making fun of this movie the whole time, it is still so lousy I couldn't stand to watch the whole thing. How did this movie ever get made? What's with all the boxes? Why do the T-Rex's keep changing size drastically? How many times can credits interrupt the start of a movie?

Even when it's bad, it's still pretty damn good.

Future War is pretty darn good.

"Hey! It's Jean Claude Van Damme!"

"More like Jean Claude Gosh Darn"

Didn't hate this episode, and am so glad MST3K still lives on Amazon Prime Instant view.

JCVD wanna-be, a foul-mouthed/street hardened nun, and exploding time-traveling dinosaurs... BOOM!

If you aren't watching it by now then you either hate fun or have a life. Dialogue is poor as is the logic of a movie with the aforementioned plot pieces. Gotta love it!

As the other review says, this movie is garbage. The set is either pipes or boxes, and wardrobe consists of matching flannel shirts. That being said, it makes perfect fodder for the bots.

This episode is awfully fantastic, but the movie is just... bad! It is one of the worst movies that we have ever seen, but that makes it so perfect for this show. The only cure for this movie is some good Chinese delivery!

Usually, I can enjoy even the worst movies by at least laughing at them...this one was too bad for me to even finish - I can't believe someone PAID to have this movie made! ...the MST characters weren't even funny...skip this roadkill!
