Chaplins last 'silent' film, filled with sound effects, was made when everyone else was making talkies. Charlie turns against modern society, the machine age, (The use of sound in films ?) and progress. Firstly we see him frantically trying to keep up with a production line, tightening bolts. He is selected for an experiment with an automatic feeding machine, but various mishaps leads his boss to believe he has gone mad, and Charlie is sent to a mental hospital... When he gets out, he is mistaken for a communist while waving a red flag, sent to jail, foils a jailbreak, and is let out again. We follow Charlie through many more escapades before the film is out. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Jonathan Y (kr) wrote: As a followup to the punks-on-a-warpath trash classic "Class of 1984", this goofy sci-fi/horror actioner is so sublimely ridiculous that it counts as an act of inspired chutzpah. Where "1984" was essentially a youth paranoia potboiler that saw evil kids terrorizing a well-meaning teacher, "1999" spins the premise in the other direction... now the violent, drug-addled punks are the heroes, while the teachers aren't just villains, they're robot assassins armed with flamethrowers and rocket launchers. Director Lester ("Commando") could have taken that premise and simply coasted his way to a bland "Terminator" ripoff, but thankfully he and scripter C. Courtney Joyner mix a lot of humor in with the copious explosions and gun battles... certainly no other movie comes to mind that features a tweed-wearing, silver-haired professor turning a pair of unruly teens over his knee and giving them a brutal cyborg-powered spanking. Trash movie vet Malcolm McDowell largely phones in his role as the beleaguered principal of a high school/prison located in the middle of a post-apocalyptic war zone, but the rest of the cast seems to be having a ball with the cheesy material. Bradley Gregg (who also did extra duty behind the scenes as co-scripter, production designer and hair stylist) seethes nicely as a downtrodden punk who just wants to go to class, while Joshua Miller (the vampire kid from "Near Dark") makes a rare but welcome appearance as an ill-fated young gangbanger.
Mark N (fr) wrote: The outstanding Morton delivers a nuanced performance as a mute alien, masquerading as an unemployed black man in NYC, as he discovers what life in 80's is like. Light on the sci-fi the story is really charming as he bumbles around meeting kind folks who give him a role in the world. One of the best elements is the video arcade scenes that are hugely nostalgic and features a number of classic games. The poor quality picture can be distracting at first but stick with it and the story soon draws you in and from then on it hardly seems to matter.
