|Warner Bros. Pictures | Release Date: May 12, 2000||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
It's a lock to pile up the honors during Hollywood's annual awards season next spring (at the Golden Raspberries and the MTV Movie Awards).
Scientology or not, the movie is a battlefield bummer that makes you want to revolt.
So heavy and lifeless that you keep waiting for those three little front-row kibitzers from "Mystery Science Theatre 3000" to appear at the bottom of the screen to start goofing on it.
An underlit, overlong, underwritten and overloud albatross of a movie.
The script, based on a novel by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, is deeply dumb, depressingly derivative (ripping off "Planet of the Apes" the most) and just plain nonsense.
Goes from being tediously terrible to downright gigglesome.
A ghastly, unappealing mess that lacks a single absorbing character, engaging story line or entertaining snippet of dialogue.
A sluggish, soporific dud, the dreariest big-budget science-fiction adventure since "Dune."
The only danger in seeing this film is in busting a gut at its unintentional hilarity.
With this kind of epic ineptitude -- hell, the flick is set in the year 3000 -- you go for "worst of the millennium."
The worst movie in living memory.
