    Thoroughly unentertaining.

    Obviously I knew this was one of the negatively regarded films in the series going into it, so I tried really hard to see if it had any good qualities. Pretty much the only somewhat cool part about this one is the parkour/scaffolding chase, and even that was just basically retreading the awesome chase from Casino Royale with less excitement and more obvious CGI.

    Wow!! This movie! It’s so bafflingly bad and yet so strangely captivating. It has all the hallmarks of a sleazy ‘70s exploitation film: nonsensical editing, a contrived plot, dated disco stingers, weirdly colorized nudity, extended slow motion footage of animal abuse, delightfully elaborate and gaudily saturated sci-fi sets, and a car chase through the streets of Manila, among the most insane I’ve ever seen. A bad movie with an admittedly unique and striking visual punch... and hey, it made me want to visit the Philippines. Watch with Rifftrax only!
