What Not To Watch: Mindstorm aka Project: Human Weapon
Movies with alternate titles are rarely good. For instance, Predator is Predator. It is not Predator aka Alien Hunter. And that’s because Predator is a great movie, not a piece of garbage like Mindstorm aka Project: Human Weapon.
What makes Project: Human Weapon a piece of garbage?
There’s the terrible script, although that doesn’t always stop an action movie from being enjoyable.
The really low grade CGI effects do this one no favors. Again bad special effects can be laughable in some movies, it adds to the charm. I was not laughing when I saw this movie.
The real problem with this movie is the casting decision to make Judge Freakin’ Reinhold an elite Special Ops Officer. Judge Reinhold hasn’t been an elite anything ever in all of his life! What made the producers think that the audience would buy Judge Reinhold as a tough guy, as a highly trained killing machine, as an action hero? Seriously THIS is the guy I’m supposed to put my faith in to save the day…
Have I mentioned Reinhold’s character is named Evan Mink?
JOHN RAMBO… JERICHO “ACTION” JACKSON… JAMES BRADDOCK… JACK MURPHY… HARRY TASKER… JOHN McCLANE… EVAN MINK??
One of the reasons I watched this movie in the first place is because I saw that it featured William Zabka, a favorite of mine from a multitude of 1980’s films. While William Zabka doesn’t scream Special Ops either, I think he’d have been more believable in the role than Judge Reinhold. I think I would have bought one of the multitude of European actors in the movie with a dubbed over voice as the elite Special Ops officer, more than Judge Reinhold.
Have you noticed that with the exception of the DVD covers produced by the sad sacks that have the misfortune of trying to unload copies of this piece of crap in the marketplace that none of the photos I’ve used in this post are from other films and not Project: Human Weapon.
That is because nobody who has seen the movie Project: Human Weapon will watch it again so they can screen cap images from it. That is how bad it is! People screen cap everything on the Internet. Right now if I wanted some screen caps from a Hoveround commercial, I could easily find hundreds of them.
I am still angry with myself for sitting through this entire movie. It was mind numbing, in fact that should have been the alternate title they used.
Finally a message to William Zabka…
If you are reading this post Mr. Zabka, I believe you owe me an autographed picture for the pain and suffering I endured as a result of supporting your movie career.
