Some superheroes are assembled, wielding the power of deus ex machnica, and and defeat bad guys that make no sense.
A bad movie, only made passable by Gal Gadot being so ridiculously good looking I lack the words to word about her looks.
Its first impression is that it's sort of Star Trek parody-thing, it quickly unfolds into its own unique space-adventure-drama.
Fantastic originality and mood. Recommended, rapidly approaching highly recommended.
Like other shows these days, I became interested in this purely because "those people" "hate" it.
With the power of Nietzsche, a barbarian-turned-warrior seeks revenge on those who killed his people.
I love it, but I'm biased because of this movie's significant influence on my early self.
Being "from back in the day", this movie is unashamedly-specific about its audience.
More recent sword-and-sorcery movies are watered-down to broaden their audience. Think The Lord of the Rings, which is a phenomenal movie in its own right, but its stark contrast has pushed movies like this one into a "classic" sub-genre. To fans of the recent movies, this one will seem crude.
For fans of the classic style, I'm confident in strongly recommending this. I think it stands out as good, and won't need to be considered "good, but only because of its historical significance".

An ex-commando's daughter is kidnapped in a ploy to have him help overthrow a foreign government, but this single father will instead fight to rescue her.
This is a movie that gets to the god damned point. It's full of tension and action, and every other line is memorable. It holds up exceptionally well, only being unsurprisingly limited by the lack of mobile phones in 1985.
I really hope you like steel drums.
A quirky and grating writer finds himself pulled into the lives of ordinary people.
A really great, well-rounded, unique movie, especially for guys, as it has a single moment of clarity that will help them understand women.
A centuries-old man is embroiled in a sword-fight between other immortals.
This is one of those movies which forged my young self, but I cannot recommend to others. It definitely feels dated, and I doubt its ideas would be particularly shaping to others compared to the other movies created since this one.
In a sense, you could also see Unbreakable - (2000 movie).
From a future destroyed by plague, a prisoner "volunteers" to be sent back in time to fetch pre-infection samples.
A great movie that stands apart both from its contemporaries and even from movies of today. It touches upon a lot of topics I find interesting in movies.
- Inspired by La Jetée - (1962 movie), written by Chris Marker

- TODO - watch with the commentary
TODO - At the end of the making-of is a secret menu and more stuff.
As part of a delaying tactic for an internal power struggle at the Central Intelligence Agency, an everyman is pointed out as a pawn to be followed as a delaying tactic.
A fantastic, classic, movie. It's simple and with a light tone. I don't think it's particularly recommendable now, but I still like it.
Two young losers somehow make a hot woman who has magical powers.
One of the fundamental parts of this movie involves some really terrifyingly-old technology. Even back then it was comical. If that can be excused, the rest of this holds up perfectly.
So with that out of the way, I can highly recommend this. I know my nostalgia must cloud my judgement, but I still think it would be a fun movie for a first-timer. It's bubblegum.
