Recon 2022: The Mezzo Incident (2007, USA)

Recon 2022A movie has to be really bad for me not to watch till the end. This one managed to achieve this rare accomplishment. Maybe I am just not to used C movies. “C” as in what comes after B in terms of money, writers and talented actors invested. There are movies that are so bad that they are good. This was not one of them, based on the first 15 minutes I survived. In that short period my retina was attacked by two barely veiled, top-less, macho soft-porn fantasy scenes, an ingenious military insubordination, explosion/fight in the snow-covered Mars(?), and two low-budget CGI montages. The problem was–besides the really flat acting, misogynist/homophobe messages, the cartoonish-cardboard stages–that these episodes did not connect to each other in any way and there seemed no hope that they ever wood. Enough reason for me to give up, no matter how much I like science fiction.
