      Eric Henderson Slant Magazine The really frustrating thing about Tomatoes is the toothlessness of its satire. Rated: .5/4 Oct 5, 2003 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 12, 2005 Full Review Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Rated: 2/5 Apr 2, 2005 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall Deliriously silly!

      Frederik V This movie is the absolute best movie i have ever had the pleasure of watching. This is a cinematic masterpiece. You will never truly understand the meaning of life until you have watched this. I am enlightened. My soul has been set free. I will never be the same, but in a good way. My depression is cured. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review Elvis D Considerada como una divertida obra maestra para algunos y una de las peores películas en la historia para otros, Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes es una película que por mucho tiempo ha sido catalogada erróneamente como una película de horror. La realidad es que se trata de una comedia que no pretende ser una buena película. Su objetivo principal es ser una mala película hecha a propósito con el fin de mofarse del cine de monstruos de los años 50, cuando la era atómica tenía gran popularidad en aquel entonces. La película logra cumplir ese objetivo usando a los tomates como un medio para parodiar el concepto de la era atómica, donde cualquier cosa podía convertirse en un ser peligroso por culpa de la ciencia. La película nunca explica por qué los tomates cobran vida, pero hay que reconocer que la película está repleta de muchas incoherencias y sin sentidos. Siendo realistas, es una película que es realmente mala, pero eso hace que tenga un cierto encanto. La película logra ser divertida y provocar risas por medio de sus gags o por su ridiculez. El humor es como el de una caricatura y esta película hace que el concepto de parodia sea llevado a otro nivel. La canción de los créditos iniciales es sin duda lo más memorable de esta película. La película es consciente de lo mala que es y usa eso a su favor para que el espectador se divierta sin la necesidad de tomársela en serio. Es gracias a ello que Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes es una película que logro ganar seguidores y la suficiente aceptación para dar inicio a una franquicia. Es por ser tan mala que acaba siendo buena. Mi calificación final para esta película es un 6/10. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review Michael F The best worst film you will ever see. "Puberty love" is an all time classic! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/08/24 Full Review Bruce J It is just plain funny, a silly movie meant to be silly to spoof the grade B 'attack of the ____' movies. Nobody will confuse it with Schindler's List but it is fun if you like this kind of humor. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review Teddy B Campy and stupid but just so endearingly hilarious. You can definitely tell that the crew of this film just had a blast creating this. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/11/24 Full Review Matt B This movie is consistently funny in so many ways. The songs are catchy as heck ("The Mindmaker's Song" in particular). The endless kills in ridiculous ways. The unplanned helicopter crash that cost it over half their budget. And most of all, the quality running gags. If that's not enough, note that the song "Puberty Love" was sung by a teen who ended up being the drummer for Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. I don't understand any of the hate for this love letter to B-movie invasion films. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Read all reviews
