Time travel. It'll turn your brain into spaghetti if you let it. Best not to think about it. Best just to get on with the job in hand. Which is destroying the enemy before they're even born and have a chance to threaten us. We're expecting any resistance to be light, because the ancestors of our enemies have yet to evolve any thumbs… or indeed spines. But that does not change the fact that they may one day evolve into a species that may pose a threat to us. And for that reason, we are going to rain down a fiery death upon them that will turn the surface of their planet into a radioactive desert! Because we are the planetary peace corps! And that is what we do! Now, are you nappy-wearing motherfuckers ready to lock and load, and *get it on*?

User Review

funny ,clever movie…keeps you on your toes…

Rating: 9/10

An enjoyable funny film with a well written story and several surprises
which made one or two of the audience in front of me sit bolt upright.
The plot is well written with considerable imagination.. and whilst the
clever ones amongst you will guess what is coming next , there are a
few scenes which caught my audience 'off guard'and made them jump ! I
do not want to give the game away, but there are good 'time travel'
loops which will amuse those of you who are not even sci-fi lovers.
Both the females add glamour.. and whilst there are probably no 'Oscar'
performances, the three guys are funny and well cast as 'ordinary
blokes'some clever non hi-tech trick shots and surprises right up to
the final credits !.. and listening to departing audience comments
there were plenty of happy people leaving the theatre.
