I'm going to go ahead and start by saying that my rating of this reflects my enjoyment of this movie and not necessarily its quality. It's a real piece of crap, and I know that, but I enjoyed it anyway. The effects are bad, the acting is bad, the set pieces are bad... everything is just, well, bad. It doesn't matter though. I've been advised to read the original serial novels that this film was adapted from and I very well could someday, but I don't write this off as just a piece of trash and hate on it for what it is. I laughed quite a bit, saw the ironies of the thing and just flat out had a good time with it. It's no masterpiece, but it's candy-coated garbage cinema at its finest!
As a serious action hero movie, this sucks ass. As a stupid, camp, immature and ridiculous action hero movie, it's pretty darn funny.
A friend of mine introduced me to the Doc Savage novel series when I was about 11 years old. By the time this film came out I was 13 and had read at least 20 of the books. I remember being one of the first in line to see it when it hit town and giddily talking about it afterward.
My temptation is to give it four stars but good sense tells me that 13 year old Randy's opinion differs considerably from 47 year old Randy's opinion. Hence, I'll split the difference between what I remember and what I suspect, at least until I see it again.
*NOTE: There is a remake in the works from the same director that brought us Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.
