Space Truckers (1996) - movie

My Rating: 7.5/10
IMDB Rating: 4.9/10

So with the title and the general plot of this movie it just screams b-grade, I mean "Space Truckers"? Do you really expect anything decent here? Well you'd be surprised.

From IMDB:
"John Canyon is one of the last independent space transport entrepreneurs. Rough times force him to carry suspicious cargo to Earth without questions being asked. During the flight the cargo turns out to be multitude of unstoppable and deadly killer robots."

Everything that happens in this movie, every moment of it you look back and you wonder "why is this not a b-grade" the budget and special effects for a 90s movie were quite good (it had a budget of 25 million dollars). The acting was decent, in fact the only thing that was b-grade-ish was that the "really hot" chick wasn't really as hot as everyone was saying. That and the entire bloody story line.

There are events you'd expect in any cheesy b-grade sci-fi movie, from the fat guy getting sucked out of a tiny little hole to the scientist guy that re-builds his body as a robot to space pirates and everything in-between.

To be honest with you don't expect a serious movie from this, it's not a straight comedy, it has humor in it, but the type of humor you'd expect in a b-grade, simple one liners and ridiculous situations. All said and done this movie was actually highly enjoyable (despite it's 4.9/10 rating on IMDB). I would watch this movie a second time and recommend it to friends (If they're into cheesy b-grade movies)
