I am going to tell you all about this movie so that you know exactly why me and DJ hated it. Let’s begin.

******SPOILER ALERT******

**************************************

**********************************************

A ship comes into the New York harbor, a man makes a lot of assumptions about it and it’s quarantined. They check the ship in Hazmat suits that are hardly Hazmat suits. Their skin and clothes are still showing. They find green eggs like nothing they’ve ever seen before. One explodes and the acid coming from it kills all but one detective, Lieutenant Tony Aris (Mase). He’s quarantined then by a Colonel Stella Holmes and looked over. They even give the acid to a rat to see what would happen to it and it explodes. Points off!!!

Question: wouldn’t the flame throwers make the eggs all go boom??

Anyway, they travel to South America to find out where the eggs are from. There’s a very uncomfortable kissing scene right before they run into the bad guys who have a cyclops that eats Tony. Yes, what the fuck?? Then, at the very end, they think they’ve gotten rid of all the alien eggs, but one on a street corner somewhere, explodes. Dun-dun-dun.

The movie is badly, badly dubbed. We were angry at this movie. I admit that. It was unintentionally funny which gave it some points, but not enough.

Our score: 15.

“We might as well split up.”
