Who's idea was this? You should be ashamed.
12 December 2009 | by AndyStew802See all my reviews

I have the tendency to lean in the direction of artistic license, but honestly this was the worst film I think I have ever seen. There was nothing redeeming about it, NOTHING! Except, there is the most amazing mullet/wig ever put on film. Even the names... the planet Anakin? Really?

Absolutely positively the most hilarious overacting ever, just atrocious on all levels. I remember making movies when I was 12 that were technically superior to this film. So enjoy it and be warned. I saw it under the name Badlanders. Thanks for making this movie, idiots.

Sidebar-there are two more of these? holy god. They must have made them to launder drug money or something
