I’ve already seen the fifth part of this six-part series, so it seems only fitting that I watch part two next. Fitting because those were the only ones I could find, that is. Oh, who cares, it’s just Josh Kirby… TIME WARRIOR.
The movie actually starts out by ending the story of the first movie, which involves a kid, an old guy, and some woman in a weird kind of Robin Hood times where everyone rode dinosaurs around for some reason. Eventually they beat the evil, scenery-chewing king and go forward in time to the year seventy bajillion, where a giant ugly bald kid captures them. They’re forced to fight a cowboy and a musketeer and a WWI German fighter pilot, but eventually team up with them to get back to their time machine.
Every single actor in this movie made me want to either cry or shoot my TV. The plot was confused, mostly because it was really a movie and a half, and the plot devices were predictable and lame. Still, the special effects were way better than what there should’ve been in something like this. I especially liked the claymation dinosaurs who look for all the world like they were actually made out of Play-Doh. Also, there was a preview on the tape for Prehysteria! 3, which I really, really, really want to see now. Tiny dinosaurs help Fred Williard fix up his putt-putt golf course! Who wouldn’t want to see that?!
