Preposterous with a capital P."

As a breakout role for WB star Jackson, The Skulls doesn't fare as well.

To explain the number of things wrong with The Skulls would require more space than is available and more time than can be spared.

Eventually runs out of ideas, wind up with a cliche car chase and then go way over the top with a preposterous final showdown of incredible dumbness.

The Skulls is shot and edited with enough verve to make you forget what a load of junk it is.

Dull and oddly outdated, only the lush photography by Hurlbut, accentuating its gorgeous Toronto-based setting, saves the picture from being a surefire cure for insomniacs.

Laughable plot pushes The Skulls to brink of absurdity.

The writing is so bad that it's impossible not to laugh out loud at scenes intended to be scary or serious.

Cohen drags it on about 20 minutes too long, getting more ridiculous, until the movie finally burns itself out.

If, in fact, Skull and Bones was ground zero of a powerful conspiracy, The Skulls would be a great disinformation tool. After seeing this, no one could ever take it seriously again.

When material is this silly, you're better off making fun of it than going down the solemnly ridiculous path Jackson chooses.

Fans of the young leads and aspiring MST3K writers may enjoy this balderdash; others are advised not to waste their time.

Don't even bother renting the eventual video.

One big problem with the film from the start: I never understood why being a Skull was so special in the first place.

This is almost mesmerisingly bad.

From such intriguing beginnings it manages to degenerate to the point where I expected Nedermeyer to show up at any moment and start spanking Kevin Bacon.

The Skulls plummets into the realm of ludicrous failure.

Some movies are moron movies without seeming to know it, which can be charmingly pathetic or just dumbfounding.

Irredeemably knuckleheaded teen-targeted tosh.
