I was expecting something Sci Fi original or The Asylum bad. I guess I was pleasantly surprised?
Among the best of the absolute worst, I'd say. 1/4 inch up from the bottom of the barrel.

Ahhhhhh, well worth the wait.  This gets a 9, and probably a couple repeat viewings. (It helps a lot that the underlying movie is so entertainingly ludicrous.  Exactly the kind of film Rifftrax needs to take on.)

Thanks, Comic-Con panel audience members.  I owe you one.

I loved this one! Really funny, throughout.

What was with the jab at Jeremy Piven, though? I love that guy. And I don't even watch Entourage. I'm a fan since PCU.

Very good. I loooooove when RiffTrax takes on something out of the mainstream.

Totally agree.  This is the first RiffTrax'd movie I hadn't seen sans commentary since "Next" (if you don't include SWHS).  Maybe the effects just work better on a smaller screen.  It wasn't run-out-into-the-streets-warning-all-who-dare-approach-it bad.  It was far from the low-budget stuff than what I was thinking, so that was a nice surprise.

I gave this one an 8.  There was def some solid riffing in this one, and I had a lot of fun.  Not sure about the revisitation factor on this one but that's more of the movie than the riffing.  Really, I just wanna support any empowerment the fans are given.  I looove that that they gave the fans a choice.  Thanks, guys!!!

I give it a solid 9. Not as good as Twilight (the RiffTrax Par Execlance) but better than Battlefield Earth.

Seems like the best movies are the top-o-the-line garbage. Ones with known actors and obvious budgets. That way you are truly mocking the movie itself and not something outside the creators control (maybe they don't have the budget for decent effects, actors, equipment).

It's like... they have every opportunity to do something great and squander it by sucking.

Big fan of this RiffTrax!

One of the best ever.  I had tears by the end of this one.

I gave it a 9.  I would have given it a ten, but I can't get the damn forced subtitles to work with my resync.  Grrrr.

Huh . . . they worked fine on mine. I used Subtitle Creator to make the subs and MuxMan to remux the video, audio, and subs. Worked perfectly, which I was very happy about since my Matrix 3 reauthor gave me so many problems.

I use DVDStyler (linux. hooray)  and I THINK i found a way to tack on the subtitles!!!  (maybe I hope)

I still haven't figured out how to make the subs on D-War or anything.  But the riffing was still awesome when I didn't have a clue what they were referencing!

i find it funnier. during red dawn, i didn't even know there were supposed to be subtitles and assumed mike was just ascribing dialogue to the characters.

Haven't watched it all yet (have to go to bed!) but....so far I love it.

And dare I say that I started thinking about MST3K and Sword and the Dragon....about how they were talking about how much more elaborate the film was in the first few minutes that most of the other ones they'd done put together.....

The opening of this movie with the attack on the village is pretty cool.

*runs and hides*

7/10 from me.

I'm sorry to say it, but I thought this was unusually weak. Maybe I just had too high hopes for this one, but I don't think that's it. While there were some memorable bits, much of it just felt phoned in and not partcularly clever. To be honest, much of the time I found the movie itself funnier than their riffing.

The "Kevin's Colin" bit was great though.

I thought it was definitely funnier with the subtitles, because I could figure out what was going on.  Not that it helped the movie's plot all that much, but it made it more obvious what the riffs were about.

Yeah, that's why I try to include subtitles whenever I'm making my reauthors. I'd just settle for closed-caption, but the TV in my bedroom is so old, it doesn't have CC on it. Which is kinda funny since my wife got it from a couple with a half-deaf husband.

So yeah, subtitles are neat.

Finally got to see this. Well worth it. 10/10.. So goofy and fun...

Perfect 10! Amazingly riffed! Straight to my top ten list.

Ho-Leeee shit, that movie...

Hah, when the first battle sequence started I couldn't stop laughing. That was really bad. The RiffTrax was great though. 9.

I laughed out loud many many times.  9.

this was like watching an old MST3k episode that movie was so bad. Was seriously laughing the whole way through- 10!

Easily one of the stupidest movies and best riffs I've seen.  The part at the beginning in the antique store reminded me of Merlin's Mystical Shop of Wonders.  And really, what was up with that getting shot point blank and being fine with no explanation whatsoever?  This movie was just begging for it.
