Redundant and unnecessary.
As Good As It Gets
The biggest problem with this movie is it’s a little better than you think it might be, which somehow makes it worse. As in, it takes itself a bit too seriously, which makes most of the movie feel kind of dull.
Holy molly maccarroni this movie is atrocious. I've seen dead bodies that are more entertaining than this. My expectations were null and even then I feel disappointed.The sets are horrible. For being in the year 3000 apparently wheelchairs have not evolved and space suits are just duct-taped. The acting is atrocious. Not even in a funny-to-watch way. Coolio tried to save this movie but no. Even the bazoongas line fell flat. It just came out of nowhere. I am confused.The plot is utterly terrible: A group of mercenaries found a space station that has been lost for half a century, which incidentally was carrying bleeping Dracula and the last direct descendant of Van Hellsing. Yeah, I just wrote that.Even the plot twists are terrible. Why is she an spy robot? Why convert a sex robot into a spy? Seriously, why? Weren't there more robots around?Avoid it like the plague.
(spoiler i guess) By far the most comical "horror" film I have ever watched. The acting is so horrible along with the god awful sceipt and dialogue. Not to mention how crappy the special effects are. The only great thing about this movie is Coolio's "interesting" display as a vampire. If you want an unintentional parody of "alien" with good actors and hilarious scenes this movie is a masterpiece. Immediately after starting the movie i wanted to kill myself.Funny as all hell but in a bad way.
In the year 3000, a salvage ship full of actors who will do anything for a free lunch finds a derelict spaceship that's been missing for 100 years. They board it and, guess what, they find Dracula. Meanwhile, the viewers find their remotes. Complete and total garbage that has some camp value for Coolio's ridiculous performance. Words escape me. You'll just have to watch to see this fool carry on. Tommy "Tiny" Lister is slightly more subdued but he's also playing a totally unlikable, vile character. For those hoping to at least see Erika Eleniak in some state of undress to make this piece of excrement worthwhile, forget it. The most you get are some cleavage shots and even then nothing gratuitous. Casper Van Dien, no stranger to Z-grade trash, gives probably the only ordinary performance in the movie. Everybody else is either under or overacting.One last thing: Darrell Roodt, a white South African man, directed this. Think about that as you watch and see the only two black characters in the movie play up to every negative stereotype of black men I've ever heard. Mr. Roodt has done at least a couple of movies with positive black characters, particularly women. So you would think he would try harder to avoid the ugliness on display here from Coolio and Tiny Lister.
I would kinda like to know what happened with the making of this movie with commentary or a behind the scenes extra. Its an interesting premise, but it misses the mark of watchable TV so badly it becomes a peculiar achievement. What went so wrong? How could this be made? Budget too low? Only had one hour? I have never, ever seen anything this bad. I love the genre, so I've seen bad and automatically cut the films some slack. Its exhilarating when I see a good one which this one is NOT. I hope its not a spoiler to warn you that this will be the worst movie you will ever see. Its really not even funny from that perspective. Its just really kinda sad.
