The Dream Machine --- The Imagination of the World Wide Web

Patterned after the old Spaghetti westerns, this one attempts to recapture the awesome grandeur of Clint Eastwood movies. All it captures however is filth and violence. It's a shame to see such a great cast (Harry Dean Stanton, Adrienne Barbeau, Ernest Borgnine) wasted in this vile, nasty piece of cinema. Pleasance is fatally miscast as the President of the United States. He's just not convincing, and seems silly when he tries to convince. The only saving grace is Russell, who offers an amazing change of pace from the mundane Disney comedies he was known for at the time. Other than that, you can't get much enjoyment out of this. Even the action scenes seem useless as an excitement generator. If you want to view a better movie, look somewhere else.
