This is one of those strangely entertaining terrible films that are iconic yet dreadful. It's about Ro-Man (aka a man in a monkey suit wearing a fishbowl on his head) who has been sent to Earth to capture the remaining 8 humans who have survived the disaster caused to obliterate humans (I think). There is a whole lot of footage of Ro-Man walking back and forth awkwardly, and a heck of a lot of bubbles but don't expect much else and don't expect it to make a lot of sense or have a good ending or a budget. The one thing it does have going for it is a somewhat decent looking dinosaur fight scene that I definitely could have watched more of, unfortunately it seems out of place in an otherwise dull movie. It's really very stupid in every way but yet bad movie fans will want to see this one any how. At least it's just a little over an hour (yet somehow it seemed very long).
