SPACEHUNTER: ADVENTURES IN THE FORBIDDEN ZONE

year: 1983 rating: ***
One of those cheap science fiction cult films without much of a following. Shot in 3D in the early 1980's and then, after formatting to 2D, things zoom at the screen for no reason. The sets resemble a MAD MAX future if it were created by Sid and Marty Krofft. Actually, it's not that bad. In fact, bigwig Ivan Reitman produced this science-fiction yarn about a rogue bounty hunter, Peter Strauss, sent to a planet where three vixens are kidnapped. He's reluctantly aided by local brat Molly Ringwald (a year before joining the brat pack) and Ernie Hudson: Lando to Strauss's Han Solo. A few mindless adventures lead to an underground cavern where Michael Ironside, as a gigantic robot-altered mutant, hosts a do-or-die match where Strauss must save Molly: who's become like a daughter and, well, although it's not that great, you'll be drawn in somehow.
