This has to be one of the worst movies based on a toy line ever made ... however, that is the main appeal of this campy movie. To me this movie is so bad that it makes it appealing in a weird way. It is just really funny because it is so bad lol. The acting is horrible, the “graphics”, if you can call them that, are truly atrocious, and you can see just how low the budget must have been for this film. The music is also terrible.

I first watched this movie when I was a child, and I remember some kids were grossed out but we all found it fun. I am now older and wiser and you can really see how bad this film is…I could even see the actors in their costumes in several of the scenes haha.

The story of this film is really bad and makes no sense, so I will just skip writing about it or the horrible acting…I really think you should just watch this film (it is now on DVD and Youtube) just for a laugh. It really is just campy fun and no more.
