Skyline Cruisers (2000)
Reviewed by: Trigger on 2001-11-20
Summary: Crap.
Terrible film. Low-rent Mission Impossible. James Bond film meets Gen-X Cops. Bad script, bad dialogue, bad plot, dumb situations, dumb action sequences and laughable special effects. It's about this group of youngsters who are the best at stealing stuff and getting past the highest security systems. They are asked to steal the cure for cancer from this evil doctor. I'd tell you more, but it makes me nauseated thinking about it.

The transfer is good, but the blacks are a little grainy. The sound is a good 5.1 mix with mindless techno music in the background. Even some of the techno music was a worked over Bond theme. I didn't bother with the extras.

Overall I give this film a but it did have a few moments. Is it worth watching? Ugh - I don't think it should be a requirement, but there are worse films out there. I didn't like it, but I didn't hate it either. This was originally supposed to be the sequel to Downtown Torpedos, but I don't think it turned out that way. Some of the stunts and effects are dazzling enough to catch your attention, but they are tarnished by a bad rip-off of a film.

Reviewer Score: 5
