4.0 su 5 stelle "Laser Mission: The Movie That Hates You." 13 gennaio 2010
Di Robert I. Hedges - Pubblicato su
Acquisto verificato
This was not my first time watching "Laser Mission", but believe me when I tell you that it's way more enjoyable with the commentary of Josh Way to distract you from the film than watching it in its original form. Although I enjoy riffing on movies, I miss the interaction between multiple commentators such as in "MST3K" or "Cinematic Titanic;" something of the magical formula is lost when it's essentially a monologue of funny lines versus an interactive conversation about the movie. Having said that, most of the lines from Josh Way are very entertaining ("Mortal Wombat!") and are well placed. A favorite was when the Brandon Lee and Debi Monahan characters first become romantically inclined and Way laments (correctly, as it turns out) "I think this movie is about to become exponentially more unpleasant." The film itself is a dreadful and cheap "adventure" movie from 1990 starring the late Brandon Lee.

If you value the memory of Brandon Lee (and even if you don't) do yourself a favor and only consider watching "Laser Mission" for startling examples of extraordinary and unintentional comedy. The film opens with the monotonous and annoying power ballad "Mercenary Man" (the handiwork, I hate to reveal, of David Knopfler, Mark's younger brother) a song that fits the theme of the film, yet is played so often in the course of the movie that you will want to scream if you hear it one more time. The theme song is by far the best part of the movie.

The plot concerns Brandon Lee as Michael Gold, a mercenary US contract agent who travels to Cuba and then onward to some fictional country in Africa (though exactly how he gets there is a bit of a mystery.) This is all in an attempt to bring Ernest Borgnine (as Professor Braun) to the United States as he has developed a method of using a big diamond (which gets a subplot of it's own in an apparent homage to the original "Pink Panther") to make a laser that can start World War Three. Needless to say, Ernest (who has the worst accent in the history of cinema) is also wanted by the KGB led by the stiflingly bad Col. Kalishnakov (named for a similarly-named Soviet-manufactured combat weapon, evidently), and the amorphously evil "Eckhardt" who is menacing with his over-the-top pseudo-Austrian accent and diction skills. Think of William Shatner as an insane, evil member of the SS and you will come close to the degree of overacting present here.

The film boils down to some of the most ineptly directed combat scenes (it's always good to stand in the open when being shot at with a rifle; it is also wise to ignore the archer shooting huge arrows from about three feet above your head, but I digress) ever recorded for posterity. As a sidebar, we get the obligatory romance between Lee and Debi Monahan, an actress with a voice that can shatter glass at one hundred yards. She is supposed to be a super-spy of some sort (that's an issue open to conjecture as well) but spends the bulk of the film shrieking and running through the desert in a dress and heels. To say there is no chemistry between Lee and Monahan is to state the painfully obvious.

There are also plots about diamond mining, genocide, a team of comic-relief communist helicopter thieves, and a family reunion during an amazing turn of events in the last five minutes of the movie, which prepares us for one more round of "Mercenary Man" and the credits. Since the title of the film is "Laser Mission" it would be fair to assume that there was actually a laser in the movie. That's where you would be wrong: the laser is mentioned but never seen. Apparently it was cheaper to rent a helicopter, a small rocky outcropping in a third-world country, and a VW bus full of fake weaponry than to show a laser.

As a special bonus the DVD also includes a wonderful short called "Bus Nut" funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. It features a school girl who has big dreams of becoming a school bus driver, and has some amazing stunt sequences. I actually found "Bus Nut" incredibly hilarious, and wondered how on Earth this thing got funded, then remembered the government paid for it. The commentary on "Bus Nut" is superb ("Tun Sub!") and required several viewings.

Overall I look forward to more of the "Fun With Flicks" DVDs, and recommend this to lovers of bad cinema anywhere.

Top notch riffing and an unbelievable movie. Having watched MST3k for years, I was happy to find another source of great riffing. This is my favorite of Josh's entries. Watch as two well coifed, milk-skinned secret agents traverse the South African desert with nary a sunburn, or even freckle after hours in the sun. Without water, food, or mousse these two are always ready for the disco as they pursue the laser loving baddies, who are Ruskies? The riffs are funny and concise. It's a lot of riffing for one man to do alone, but Josh makes it look easy, and never breaks a sweat. Thanks for the laughs.

2.0 su 5 stelle Ernest Borgnine uses his fake European accent again 22 ottobre 2006

We are entreated with a song that sounds like leftover sixties or a Hallmark love story; they keep playing it over and over and over. Michael Gold (Brandon Lee) independent agent or mercenary is tasked with bringing back or killing a laser scientist Prof. Braun (Ernest Borgnine) probably related to Eva. If the scientists laser knowledge is crossed with the world biggest diamond it will create a, are you ready for this? Nuclear weapon. To do this mission Michael must teem up with the professors libeling daughter Alissa (Michael).

The only problem is that the CIA does not trust him. The daughter turns to have an annoyingly negative attitude.

Is she for real as she can shoot, drive, and cross 40 miles of desert in high heals?

Is the professor what he seems as he seems chummy with the bad guys?

Is Sgt. Roberta (Maureen Lahoud) really a sergeant or a girl? In any case she is part of a Laurel and Hearty team.

Like a cheap Bond movie will Gold get the professor, diamond and the daughter? Does he want to?

After you get the bad taste of this movie out of your mouth, watch Ernest Borgnine put his accent to good use in "Ice Station Zebra" (1968)

I hate to say this but if you are not collecting Brandon Lee films. Then you would have no reason to buy this dvd. This film's number one problem is that it cannot stand the test of time. The dialogue is so out dated and even worse are the action sequences. The fight scenes are nowhere close to The Crow or Rapid Fire. The storyline is bad and the acting is not good either. This is like any of the action television shows of the 1970's or early 1980's put on the big screen. The only thing I can tell you for sure. If you see it once you will not watch it again.
