Roger Santet is a convicted murderer sprung from prison by the Sicilian clan headed by the aging Vittorio Manalese. They conspire to steal a large cache of jewels from an exhibit in Rome. As they are preparing for the heist, the mobster's American friend Tony Nicosia suggests that a better way to get the rocks would be to hijack the transport plane while it is en route to New York. The dogged inspector Le Goff is using all the available resources to thwart their plans. Though the heist itself is successful, Santet finds himself trapped by the mob because of his fling with Manalese's daughter-in-law

Ah, I can't believe subjected myself to this film along with the people involved. It is not that this is an unoriginal piece of crap made by bunch of chuckling and sneering dorks, but it is an inconceivable exercise with barely any plotting or direction. I wonder if anyone even read the script or was developed. I guess this is or was supposed to be a tongue-in-cheek and self-reflective parody which could have worked if anyone knew what was going on. The music is really bad and the costumes are barely tolerable, but not as much as the Spice Girls. Spice World follows the Spice Girls wherever they go with all kinds of inane ideas and caricatures with musical montages, and only separated when we see another character besides the Spice Girls which a lot of the scenes seem to have been cut from other scenes. We have Hugh Laurie, Elvis Costello, and Roger Moore just to name a few. I could not believe the disorganization throughout the whole film which could qualify for ridicule by Mystery Science Theater 3000 since we have a scene involving aliens. The Spice Girls are made up of Mel C, Mel B, Ginger Spice, Baby Spice, and Victoria Beckham. Their film debut and music are well in synched with each other in terribleness. There are even few random moments that I thought I was going to chuckle, but never did. I would place this film with Pootie Tang. I know you are going to wonder why I bothered to watch this film in the first place and it's quite a long story, but what compelled me to see this happened after seeing it in a list of films that were going to be removed from Netflix. I already miss the chance to see Donnie Darko which is considered a cult class. I do enjoy the so bad, so good film once in a while. I clicked hoping to get a chuckle at its terribleness, but was not prepared. I won't tell you what I want. What I really want. Oh and don't expect it to be sexy because I tried that as a last ditch effort, but didn't work too well."

Ian M (gb) wrote: A typical Kubrick masterpiece, divided into two distinct plot areas. The first half of the film is set at U.S. Marine Corps Basic Training at Parris Island, South Carolina amidst the Vietnam War. The audience is introduced to a variety of draftees who are to be transformed from civilians into killers, at the hands of Drill Instructor Gunnery Sergeant Hartman ( R. Lee Ernst). The second half of the film follows Corporal "Joker" (Matthew Modine), one of the Marines from the first segment as he works as a military journalist for Stars and Stripes, following a Marine infantry squad during the Tet Offensive.The film is overwhelmingly "anti-war". A major theme in the first segment is the brainwashing of humans to become ruthless killers. The second half seems more disconnected but a strong sense of apathy towards winning the war and a lack of purpose in being there rounds off one of Stanley Kubrick's more overlooked films from his later career.

Christopher H (ag) wrote: An enjoyable 50's creature feature in which the effects have aged rather well for the most part. A real tarantula was used in the scenes were the title creature crawls across a miniature desert landscape. There is also a scene where we see a lab full of enlarged animals that looks pretty cool. Despite some entertaining effects, the makeup used for the facial deformities of the professor guy look a bit laughable at times. The movie also boasts from some good acting from the cast, a good dose of atmosphere, and a welcome tongue-in-cheek nature. It is not mind-blowing, but it is a nice little creature feature that does not easily fall into the goofy self-seriousness that plagued some other 50's B-movies. Be on the look out for a young Clint Eastwood, who plays an ariel squad leader that attacks the giant tarantula in the film's blazing climax.
