It's getting good reviews from all the right places. It's supposed to be fun. Look at the Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon game. All the old cool stuff seems to be making a comeback.

Looks and feels like Lexx and has that sense of humor. Mix in Mortal Kombat and you're nearly there.

it's worth my 10 bucks.

Sort of reminded me of Lexx and the lofty goals it aspired to. The movie is only an hour long and is genuinely funny while being wrapped in a Mortal Kombat slash 80's action scifi aesthetic. Throw in Ray Harryhausen for effect and your almost home. It was totally one of those VHS tapes the guy at the local store would rent me without ID that would piss my mom off, but better than some of those.

If you will watch The Video Dead or Hobo With a Shotgun (MUST SEE) and enjoy that stuff you should like this.

I'm actually still reeling over the ending.

Manborg is up on Amazon Instant for rental. Well worth 4 bucks for the enlightened ones here.

Take my money! Thanks I'll watch it tomorrow night.

My buddy at work was just talking about Manborg and said if you're into that vibe you should download the Far Cry: Blood Dragon game on Ps3/Xbox. You can play it as a stand alone. $14.99 The gameplay looks wild!

Nope. Meaning love of the old Vestron/Full Moon/Hammer/Troma films is required. If you aren't a fan of those this will be terrible, probably. It is very funny and knows exactly what it is and what it's not. Which I respect.

From a creativity point of view it was made on 1000 bucks by 6 people who LOVE movies and that shows. Again, much respect, but who am I, I think Hawk the Slayer is better than most of all the recent sword and sworcery flicks.

Checked it out on on VUDU last night. The cheese is pretty thick & the video reminded me of that old arcade game Pit Fighter. It's a good time that left me with a craving for more of that old 70/80's VHS cheese. Off to the flea market!

Darth did you check out the trailer for Bio Cop afterwards? OH MY!

edit* it appears Bio Cop was a trailer for a fake movie. What a disappointment. frown.gif

No but I need to to. My DVD is a week out. I read the Astron 6 might make Bio Cop into a movie somewhere.

Fresh review.

Spoiler tag for profanity.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Well **** me running, this movie rules. I asked a buddy last weekend if Manborg would be worth my time and his reply was “Guaranteed. It’s like Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon as a movie.” That pretty much said to me that I definitely needed to check this **** out. Filmed with a budget about the amount of my monthly rent, astron-6 took all of my favorite 80s Sci-Fi flicks and video games and threw them into orgy, and out of the finishing ooze walked Manborg. This flick is Duke Nukem and Mortal Kombat going steady. It’s Terminator and Cyborg if they were besties. It’s They Live and The Running Man with a Hardware wasteland backdrop. Take all of these references and pour a thick layer of cheese over top and eat ‘em like they’re the best ****ing nachos you've had all year…. this is Manborg.

EDIT:
According to Amazon, there is a Region "B" BD available from Germany.
Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be Region "A" anywhere.

BTW, the DVD is available for 12 bucks...
