      Blu B As bad as everyone say it is 100%. Bad music with no sense of style or theme and just stupid with bad acting to boot and a really bad villian. Everything else is just horrific. Constant bad jokes, one liners, horrific special effects especially anything with space. I will say every once in a blue moon a joke got a little smirk but it just had too much to overcome. Once he arrives on earth, stuff just happens and the ending drags terribly with brainless action. The set design hs a very cheap feel to it also. They never explain either how he knew which house to go to from a poster with a arrow on it. Also, he's a alien so he's more of a galagtic super hero than commando so the title makes no sense. Lloyd's character is boring also a long with his two kids who may be some of the most pointless children I've ever seen. They literally don't dohardly anything so I'm not sure why they are in it at all. I don't really have much more to say beyond yeah this sucks....skip it. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 11/20/23 Full Review Bardy B Look: the fact that you are looking at this movie means you're not looking for some cinematic masterpiece. You want 90s schlock - a stupid action movie with inconsistent and absolute nonsense for a plot that ends exactly how you'd expect it to end. And you want it to be generally and genuinely corny as a state faire food both. Congratulations - look no further. When it comes to 90s trash cinema, this ranks just below No Holds Barred. Is it perfect? God no. But you don't wany perfect. You want Suburban Commando. And here it is. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/30/23 Full Review Dan H Ah... classic Hulk Hogan all the way. This was one of my favorite films growing up. It's also one of the Hulkster's greatest movies. If you're a fan of Hogan, then you need to see this one. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/13/23 Full Review KingCrispy besides a few jokes through out the movie, it was the most enjoyable movie ive seen in years Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review max a This is yout typical 90s movie with a lot of goofy moments, bad stunt performances, and horrible puns, but a really good soundtrack tho! The plot is fun, watch this a Sunday afternoon with your kids, but don't expect Oscar material, just a silly fun movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Stephen C The greatest 1.5 hours of family science fiction ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
