Too much of everything
A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.
There's a more than satisfactory amount of boom-boom in the movie's trim running time.
The tone of this movie is interesting -- the stakes are both dramatic and high, but it's balanced with a lot of fun, tongue and cheek dialogue.
Yes the corps are real. They deciede to what they like you to watch and not. They give you something and if they make money over it, its ok, But not, suddenly they cut your expactations. I curse them. I hope they suffer and taste the loss everthing they have, even their lives. All corps must die.
This has the typical good and bad of those 1950s mythical stories with Jason & The Argonauts and Sinbad and The Golden Fleece, etc. The good being Ray Harryhuasen's special effects and the bad being the stupid dialog and sub-par acting. Boy, this one really has both in spades.Since this film was done 20 years after those other films, I expected Harryhausen's special effects to be far better, to be honest. For a 1977 film, it didn't look far removed from the cheesy efforts of the 1950s. Maybe part of that was the horrible dialog. The latter was so bad this film was embarrassing to watch at times. I'd like to see some of these re-made today. I am sure they would be far superior to this Class B junk.
It's not easy to figure out how to rate a movie like this, so I decided to rate it based purely on my opinion of its "laugh factor." I've seen this and "Next Movie," but not "Up in Smoke." In my opinion, this one is the funnier of the two. It is definitely zanier and more over-the-top (not to mention just plain weird), but the jokes are funnier and (unlike "Next Movie") it has something of a plot. Some of the scenes are real classics, like the "chicken guy" in the nuthouse, Cheech's inability to scratch, Jimmy's reaction to the light bulb in the police station, and others.I enjoyed both this one and "Next Movie" but have to say this is the better of the two in my opinion. One of these days I'll rent "Up in Smoke" as well. These films were made when I was in High School and I've enjoyed the occasional viewing through the years... although I'm not a stoner, it's still easy to enjoy this kind of silly humor.
True. This film is a typical 80's Mad Max rip off, however, this one lies in a very fine field. Interzone succeeds where so many other fail. The film is terribly low-budget but the is a great deal of ingenuity with the special effects and action sequences. Bruce Abbott is fantastic in the lead. He plays the role in a very jokey 'I know this is a dud film, so what!' and this adds a lot to the character of Swan. All in all that is a highly entertaining film and will please lovers of the genre (who should watch it with a clear mind) to no end!
