...you know, the one with all the lasers.

If we used decimals, I'd give it an 8.5. Normally I'd round up, but I gave Thor a 9, and I liked that better than this, so. I'll round down to 8. I will say that of the recent string of VoD's, this was my second favorite after Devils Hand.

I did thoroughly enjoy looking at the girl's cleavage throughout the entire movie though, But that's not related to the riff. And for God's sake stop with the stupid accents, I couldn't understand the Austrian guy at all. And what they hell country were they in? And what was the point of the Cubans being there and how did they end up in the slave camp? And really dude, you couldn't tell she was female?!

I LOVED this one and had a ton of laugh out loud moments.   

9.4, so I rounded down to 9.

Solid 8.5 to 9. A return to form after the (in my opinion) lackluster Thor riff.

Really good! Lots of laugh out loud moments early.

The worst thing was the fluctuating audio levels.   :grr:

Solid 9! Probably the most "MST3K"-esque Riff in a long time. Great movie, great riff!

I give it a 9, rounded up from 8.5 or so.  I thought it was very funny throughout, with some great one-liners and running gags.  "This scene reminds me of a video game where I'm somewhere I'm not supposed to be, and I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing." :clap:  Great choice of a movie to riff for sure.  Kudos to whoever dug that one out of whatever pit it came from.

The only major problem I had was the audio; most of the movie sounded like it was recorded with the actors inside a submarine and the microphone in the ocean.  I'm sure that's just how the movie really sounds, but I kept wondering if the download was bad because there were only one or two riffs reguarding that.  The actual Rifftrax sounded great as usual, though.

Overall it was hilarious.  Keep up the good work, guys.

Yeah, the foley artist and sound man did not win any awards for this one.

I get the sense that many of the problems are related to the source, or processing by the rifftrax folks. I've watched this before and I don't remember it being this bad. But there are definitely problems at the film-making level.

This one is not on us. The source really is just THAT bad.
Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

Really, after all the lavish spending on chopping melons, you cannot fault them for skimping on the sound budget.

One time where you'd WANT to see a boom mic in the shot, because at least you'd know they have one.

Kind of like in the movie "Dolemite" where the boom mic could have been given a cast credit....

A solid 8. Good jokes, dull movie, bad audio.

Hilarious 9. I actually had to stop the movie several times because I was laughing so hard and I didn't want to miss anything.
Oh bite me, it's fun!

10/10.

Haven't laughed so hard since High School M and Order Phoenix. Only the lack of robots made it evident it was Rifftrax instead of a classic MST3K episode.

There must be some god of sound engineering, animation, and lip sync out there that can digitally render the silhouettes and have them somehow match the voices. I will sacrifice anything upon that altar.
