Roller Blade Seven is so fantastically bad--so terribly, mindbogglingly weird--that you cannot help but laugh. The progression of absurdity will keep you constantly amused; just when you think this movie has done the weirdest thing it possibly could, it goes and does something even weirder. "Didn't that character die several scenes ago?" you may ask yourself or "Why are ninjas wearing black in the middle of the desert?" or "Why is Joe Estavez doing anything he is doing?"; but these answers becomes irrelevant as mummy playing a banjo skates across the screen. You eventually accept that nothing that is happening has any coherent reason behind it and just accept the absurd happenings as they come. Yet, like all truly enjoyable bad movies, Roller Blade Seven was not intended to be bad.
An exercise in "Zen Cinema", in which no script is used, this plot-less meander through Scott Shaw's spiritual... let's say 'vision', presents us with so much thinly-veiled allegory that it would likely be tedious if it were not so hilariously heavy-handed. Despite this, I must conclude that there is a spiritual element to the film: though it is not the one Shaw intended. The audience is left constantly wondering how anyone could have thought anything that happens in this movie was a good idea. By watching, you the viewer are forced to come to terms with the fact that a rational human being created this monstrosity, this abomination unto everything reasonable, and you are left with only one possible response: to laugh.
Lord Byron said that "if I laugh at any mortal this, 'Tis that I may not weep". The Rollerblade Seven Trilogy is the epitome of this sentiment.
