1.0 out of 5 stars The Worst of The Worst, March 13, 2002
This review is from: Captain America [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Within the first fifteen minutes of watching this movie, I was in pain. It was a sheer physical act of will to remain in front of the TV screen, as each anguished minute passed.
Could this, in fact, be the worst movie ever made? It certainly is fatally flawed in every aspect. The acting is not worthy of the name. The story is terminally unbelievable without actually achieving any sense of fantasy. The plot is full of errors that are perhaps more like plot-exit-wounds than mere plot-holes.
The characters are facile, the make-up apalling, the props are jarring and the special effects are decidedly less than special. The settings are cliched, the camera-work makes reality TV look good, and the fight scenes would scarcely do justice to a school pantomime.
This movie truly tests the strength of your stomach. It lurches from the mock-violent to the insultingly-stupid, passing through the ghastly-sweet on the way.
The ultimate insult in this movie is the fundamental premise. The president of the U.S. is kidnapped because he has decided to ignore the pressure from big business and make a unilateral stance against pollution - whatever the political and economic cost.
Sadly, we now know that this is the absolute opposite to the tragic truth of US environmental non-policy. Compared to this piece of fantasy, every other brain-damaged piece of unbelivable plot that this movie inflicts on us seems relatively realistic.

Try watching the Nostalgia Critic's review of this movie. It might salve a little of the pain.
