The fun of this film is watching Bruce gather his legions of freedom fighters to battle the "Bugs" that have over run the planet.
From the "Great Healer" to the "Great Exterminator" Campbell brings fun to a role that would have been unwatchable with any other actor in the spot.
If you are a fan of sci-fi and B-movie adventure be sure to check it out.
It's a B Flick so just go with it People!!!!!
As the movie begins we hear narration with regards how aliens wiped out a majority of Earth's population, and the remnants turned into a slave labor force. In the sky we see a fiery object barreling towards Earth (a manned space capsule), and here come four astronauts, two women (a blonde and a brunette, who is injured), along with two men (Bruce and an African American man).Read more ›
Typical for films of this ilk, a group of astronauts return to earth in the future to discover it has been infested with giant mites, which immediately place them (and all other remaining humans) into slavery, making them work at a lumberyard near Portland, Oregon. The aliens (who look uncannily like Zorak from "Space Ghost") have a predilection for biting the heads off of people, and give an entirely new meaning to the terms "fingerbowl" and "finger sandwiches." Bruce, who is a physician, leads a breakout, and the escapees set off to find the completely ineffectual President, who is encamped with his aides, but refuses to assist the humans. They also run across a band of pacifists living in "Freedom Valley" who also do not appreciate the true peril confronting them, and fail utterly to grasp that sometimes enemies fail to appreciate peace and tranquility as much as they do. Both of these are excellent allegories to the current political state in certain parts of the world, though I don't think the movie is in any way heavy-handed.
There are some great scenes and lines in the movie, my favorite being "Your stupidity is terminal, and now you're cured." (I was going to use this as the title of my review but a fellow reviewer beat me to it.) I also found it entertaining that while many want to call Bruce "The Great Healer," he wants to be known as "The Great Exterminator," a title he truly deserves by the end of the film.
The extras are extensive and include a commentary track, a great behind the scenes video, a storyboard gallery, and more.
