Wow... this movie is total fun. It doesn't attempt to be mind-blowing or original but it succeeds in providing campy entertainment. It does parody other movies (that's a nice way of saying rip off) extensively, taking full scenes like the "police headquarters terminator invasion" from the first Terminator and the entire Hoth storyline and imagery from Star Wars: The Empire... They even got the clear strategic panel. And Lord Tarkin.... ha! This movie has its faults in that it's total B-movie. But this only enhanced it for me, and the presence of Nielsen (a fav.) was very cool. Her character meant nothing in the beginning, but grew on me, and her "Nooo!" scream was the funniest I've seen in some time. Great stuff, if you can watch it without pretenses!
