"Trancers 6" review

Trancers 6 (2002)

Directed by Jay Woelfel
Writing credits Paul De Meo

Zette Sullivan .... Josephine Forrest/Jo Deth
Jennifer Capo .... Shauna Wilder
Robert Donovan .... Dr. Paul Malvern (as Robert Donavan)
Timothy Prindle .... Mark

I bought this video for three bucks. Although I haven't seen a single Trancers movie, I decided to skip ahead and jump right into "Trancers 6". I saw a babe with a big gun on the video box cover. That's all I needed to know about "Trancers 6".

Now I realize that I was rash and foolish. I can only assume that the appeal of these movies is the wisecracking Jack Deth, Trancer killer. Well, in "Trancers 6" they do away with him by having him "possess" his daughter and have her do all of the killing. So we get this babe walking around acting tough, telling horrible jokes and killing Trancers as cheaply as possible.

Bashing "Trancers 6" for being a cut-rate sci-fi B-movie is only stating the obvious. But I'll do it anyway. "Trancers 6" is cheap, brain-dead and pointless. Somehow I've got to get my standards above my current "Hot Chick with big gun is good enough". It's going to take awhile.

SCORE: 1 out of 4 girls with guns

i just saw it and thought it was ok. i don't see why people are so fixed at bashing it; what, jack deth not there, i think having a hot babe in his place is actually an improvement.

what it REALLY is that the critics are AFRAID of change, they can't handle it when they change the recipe. tough beans folks, i'd like to see trancers 7 with that babe!

my two cents
