Whoo. Man.
It's been a long time since I've seen this movie. I guess when I was younger, even though I sensed that the movie was pretty dumb, I thought the cartoonishness of this thing was tolerable. But man, it is a challenging watch in some ways. You have to keep resetting your tolerance for ridiculousness. I mean it's just so impossibly silly, it's like Italian Spider-man or something. Like I seriously couldn't believe how ridiculous this was for almost every ridiculous minute of its ridiculous run-time.

It's been a few weeks now and my opinion hasn't really changed, this is a movie that can really only be watched as a sort of joke. Which is fine, I have no issue with that. But I don't think I'll likely watch it again. I actually thought I remembered reading some ret-con where they claimed that they made it so absurd on purpose as some kind of statement, a satire that maybe I could laugh along with, but after doing some more reading apparently that is not the case, apparently this is just the movie they were trying to make. So I was really just laughing at it.
Anyway, if you want to watch something that is just absolutely laughable and perhaps the ultimate example of 80s excess, look no further, this is your film.
