Review from the Canadian Premiere at TAD Film Fest

bike trailer review Manborg Matthew Kennedy

Manborg Matthew Kennedy

Astron 6 has done it again with another awesome movie to stand along the recent father's day! This is low budget filmmaking at its very, very best, Manborg is a throwback to cheesy Sci-Fi's of the 80s with lots of references to classic films but is 100% original, pure entertainment from start to finish with crazy low rent green screen effects and cheesy acting and dubbing and dialogue but its totally fantastic, the movie is made this way on purpose so make sure you know what your getting yourself into when you watch it, great cast as usual, brilliant bad guys the make-up effects and gore are awesome!! The soundtrack is great too especially on the cool open credit sequence, this is a modern Grindhouse style cult classic and must be seen, fantastic special features too and commentary, a bargain at any cost!!

Get your Manborg Matthew Kennedy Now!

  1. I was a huge fan of FATHER'S DAY (Astron-6's other film) and had been anticipating this DVD months before a release date was even announced. I had the highest expectations and my expectations were met.

    The movie transports you to an awesome place. I'm not a film critic, so I'm not sure what else I can say - I LOVED IT. For fans of FATHER'S DAY, John Carpenter, Full Moon Pictures, 80's sci-fi/horror, etc.

  2. Few fillums recently have given me such continuous and sincere enjoyment as this film. When one watches the Deleted and Alternate Scenes and the "Behind the Scenes" footage (one doesn't need to see much of either one), and observes the wretched locale and the ratty green drops in front of which the actors of this film gave their all, one is, well, in awe... Having seen such a fillum, I have no fear that the new technologies (particularly filmic) will rob us of our humanity or of our narrative virtues... Plus, it contains a very important message! ...I think...

  4. Feeling like I needed to fondle a joystick to get in on the action, I'd describe the movie as Tron powered off corroded batteries, dreamed about by Mel Gibson's foetus while playing Mortal Kombat as fumes from a burning pot of PLAY DOH filter in through your nostrils. I'd like to see how different the Terminator would have been if Manborg was reprogrammed to do bad and sent back in time. Ultra Lo-Fi by today's standards but that's the beauty of it.

  5. I got to see this at The Royal in Toronto, and it was hilarious.

    I'll admit - I'm a big fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger because he doesn't take himself too seriously - so instead of being cheesy, his movies come across off as self-deprecating.

    This movie reminds me of an Ahhnold movie. A ridiculous premise, a very obvious low budget ($2000), but in the end, a hilarious ride. There is drama, there is comedy, and replete throughout the movie is a lot of homages and self-jabbing at movies that take themselves too seriously.

    Buy it. Watch it. And share this movie. It's awesome.
