There is too much opportunity to notice the weak spots in Mr. Needham's direction. In the case of Megaforce, these include silly dialogue, poor matching shots, oafish staging, and one scene filmed between two silhouettes against a magenta background.
An elite fighting crew, Megaforce has a motto: "Deeds Not Words." No wonder; if your dialogue was as ludicrous as theirs is, you wouldn't want to stand around and talk either.
Well over $20 million was spent to create a film full of sound and fury but without an inkling of intelligence.
The film maintains an actual "plot," but views it more as a nuisance than a necessity, probably because it would detract from the scorching homoeroticism of Bostwick in his spandex unitard.
One can only speculate where the money went (up their nose?) because it certainly isn't in the shoddy miniatures, or the fantastically abysmal blue-screen work. Maybe all the money went to a wrangler for Barry Bostwick's headband?
Wow. Just wow.
Another Hal Needham dud but this time without Burt Reynolds.
Rare is the film this uproariously awful.
