4.0 out of 5 stars Micro-budget Masterpiece, June 22, 2013
This review is from: Manborg (DVD)
To think that this was made for about $1000 bucks is pretty astonishing. That is not to say this film, ehh, umm, video (shot on Hi-8) is an incredible work of art. It certainly is not, and the film makers (Canada's Astron-6) know it. But taken in the spirit it is intended, it is an enjoyable, short (a brief 70 mins.) piece of fluff entertainment. The special effects, make-up, and costumes are all undeniably homemade looking. This will never be confused for a big-budget Hollywood action movie. But that's not the reason to see "Manborg". The real reason to see it is to watch what can be made for so little money, but with a lot of heart and passion, the two things that seem to be missing from those big-budget Hollywood movies. So if your thing is big, polished blockbusters like those that Michael Bay is well-known for (and that's fine), than you'd be probably better staying away from "Manborg".
Despite its limited resources (a tattered green screen, shot almost entirely in mom & dad's basement with outdated video equipment), "Manborg" is a triumph in micro-budget indie filmmaking. Be sure to watch through the end credits to watch the faux movie trailer to "Bio-Cop". That's a real treat!
