This one slipped by me!
Great title, shame about the movie.
Intentional awfulness is still awful. Lacks the tacky charm of Troma's "best" films.
"Surfers rule the waves, and Nazis rule the surfers"
Surf Nazis must die, it sounds just like a cheap 80s trash movie, and it's all of the above. While the movie was fun coming in, it actually seemed like it was pursuing out from its title. It was more talk than actual action, which is really different then what the title implies. Gail Neely was absolutely dreadful in her perofmance, while the rest of the cast was actually reasonably good. As the titl may imply, stay away from it.
Not the worst Jane Austen adaptation Ive seen.
For those of you that have been living in caves, and haven't seen this, this is a Troma "pick up" from 1987 that is a wonder to behold. To be truthful, it's fairly well done for what it is, which is "beachploitation trash". LA has been hit by "The Big One", 8.6, and it's pretty much anything goes, at least at the beach. Surf Nazis rule the beach, the waves, and whatever else their demented little minds tell them. Now, when a black man is killed by the Surf Nazis his mom, who is by no means ready for the rest home in which she's now living, decides to take matters into her own hands. There are also other rival surf "gangs" that don't take kindly to the claims of the SN's and attempt to fight back but with dire results. OK, sure, this is hokey and silly but it's also pretty fun, and I like the music & the beach scenes, in which it's all pretty deserted looking and lends some authenticity to the idea that there aren't many folks that actually survived this big quake, just a bunch of psychos fighting over surf supremacy. A classic 80's movie, fer shure.
This was a disappointment, being a Troma film and all, but it still gave me some entertainment and unexpected laughs. Wish they would've worked a plot into it, would've made it funnier.
