Which is that “Backlash” feels, to all intents and purposes, like a single episode of a light-drama TV series.
Partly because all the characters survive, pretty much, but there’s a complete damp squib of an ending and the plot is so slight, recapping it is a matter of a few lines.
I dearly wish Full Moon had made TV shows, because their talents seem to go in that direction – and this criticism could be levelled at so many of their movies.
An “Oblivion” TV series would have been a lot of fun.
Sweeney is looking for a female criminal, Jaggar is looking for his brother…I think.
I’m really not sure, but they paid Andrew Divoff for two movies and by god they were going to use him!
Andrew Divoff has as much fun as you can manage with a rubber face, too.
Unfortunately, most of the rest of the cast try but completely fail, often because they’re just terrible actors – Newmar, Isaac Hayes as the barman at Lash’s place, and once again worst of the lot, George Takei.
Moving on to the new stuff, Lash (Musetta Vander, the standout of both movies) now owns a dive bar way out in the wilds, and wins a substance X mine in a bet.This is predictably wacky, but dropped into this mix is intergalactic bounty hunter Sweeney (Maxwell Caulfield!) and lizard alien Red-Eye’s brother Jaggar, conveniently played by the same actor (Andrew Divoff).A few people “get” the campy tone that Full Moon was going for.
Vander is amazing, completely stealing both movies, but Caulfield is superb too as the foppish (but super-violent) Englishman – and I’m not just saying that because he was born just down the road from me.
It’s insubstantial, fluff to disappear from the brain as soon as it finishes; which is a shame as it’s the sequel to something I rather liked, with most of the original cast returning.
