The military developed a cybernetic soldier that ends up going rogue with nuclear launch codes because it received conflicting orders (conspiracy!), so a ... "band of nubile coed soldiers" (:P) are sent to destroy it. The execution is horribly poor. MVP Props go to Kristen Dalton who looks fantastic with her red hair and carrying a huge gun. Adam Baldwin also gives a quality performance, more than the film deserves. It's no wonder those two still have careers.

I think it's tempting to directly identify Sandy Bates with Allen and treat this film as Allen complaining about audiences and their lack of appreciation for his more serious films. The problem is that that's a super lazy reading of the film and not one really supported by what's on screen. The film is ultimately fairly critical of Bates's more morbid obsessions and comes down on the side of comedy being an important relief from life's hardships. (You know, while this is often classified as Allen's "8 1/2", it ultimately plays a bit more like his "Sullivan's Travels".)
(nl) wrote: The science part that sets this pic into motion is actually pretty cool and well thought but the execution is lame, with cardboard sets that are horrible to look at and it just drags forever and ever, never really going anywhere or giving any decent payoff in the end. This what b-movies in the 60s looked like.
