Just when you thought the early Japanese monster/sci-fi movies were awful, this South Korean stinker shows up and manages to be worse... a lot worse! All the elements are here... serious scientists in starched white coats, a small boy who befriends the monster, ridiculous rubbery costume, silly, fawning women and terribly dubbed audio.
This time, the friendly bunch piloting The Satellite Of Love are up to the task and deliver an above average entry to the latest reboot of a cult comedy classic started almost 30 years earlier. It's the ninth movie of the new series to be lambasted by the MST3K crew - and so far (I'm watching them in release sequence) it's one of the best.
This is a welcome addition to the new series, especially after the previous dud 'The Loves Of Hercules.'
Best gag: "He shows no mercy... or interest!"
