Space Marines

What a terrible, terrible movie Space Marines is. It's playing on TV4 at the moment.

Every single line of the script is cliched. The CGI spaceships look like they're out of Wing Commander (the computer game, not the movie). The chief bad guy appears to have escaped from a stage show version of The Three Muskateers.

Where are Mike and the bots when we need them? :)

What I learned from Space Marines

1. Diplomacy is no substitute for blowing shit up.
2. You can make a science fiction movie just by stringing cliches together.
3. Two people can fire machine guns at each other from a few feet away and completely fail to hit each other for a full two seconds (see also The A Team).

File this one under "So bad it's good" :)
