For good reason too it must be said. ow 'Attack...' is considered a cult classic in some circles. A revitalisation of the 'B-Movie' in the 1970's...yada yada yada... well, it is amusing in an 'I'm pretty tired at the moment and this is really bad but still vaguely funny in places'. It falls into a similar camp as Airplane (1980) as far as humour goes, although obviously Airplane et al have refined the art a lot more.
You watch 'Attack...' and can't help wondering if you should round up a group of friends and film your own version of it. I reckon the results would certainly be comparable and it'd probably be a great laugh doing it.
Anyway, I am glad I watched it but I'm not sure if I'll be tracking down it's sequels (one of which, The Return of the Killer Tomatoes (1988), apparently features a young George Clooney). The IMDB has it down as an average rating of 4.1/10 and I'd tend to agree. Certainly not the worst film I've seen this year (and the year is still young - pity me please!) but it won't be appearing on any 'Best of' lists come the end of the year either.
