My Thoughts:
After very much enjoying the superhero movie "Krrish", I was eagerly awaiting to watch its predecessor. The first half of the movie I enjoyed very much so. I think the lead actor does a great job in portraying the mentally retarded Rohit. Here we learn which problems Rohit encounters in everyday life because of his disability. And we learn how he befriends Nisha, the love interest.
The second half though is a rip-off of E.T. Aliens land (special effect for the space ship are good) and leave again, leaving behind one of their own. This E.T. rip-off befriends Rohit and gives him abilities (great mind and physical powers). In the end Rohit must help E.T. to get home again avoiding all the military.
Rahit is the father of the character of the sequel. In the sequel we learn through flashbacks what happens to Rahit after this first movie. And these scenes were my expectations for this movie. I would have liked it better, if the second half of this movie would have had the tone similar to the scenes we saw in these flashback scenes.
The songs in this movie are rather forgettable. Nothing as catchy as the ones in Krrish. But they didn't bother me.

Animal Protector, a review by GSyren


TitleAnimal Protector (7-393608-570208)
DirectorMats Helge, Anders Nilsson
ActorsDavid Carradine, A-R Hellquist, Camilla Lundén, Mats Huddén, Timothy Earle
Produced1988 in Sweden
Runtime97 minutes
AudioEnglish Dolby Digital 5.1, English Dolby Digital 2-Channel Stereo
SubtitlesSwedish
OverviewA group of animal rights activists get wind of an island where terrible experiments on animals are made in hope of developing new biological weapons. They go there with the mission of freeing the animals, but all does not go accordingto plan, and soon they realize that they may be the only ones that can stop a world wide disaster.
My thoughtsAnimal Protector is one of three movies that Swedish director Mats Helge Olsson (usually credited as just Mats Helge) made with David Carradine. Rumor has it that Olsson hired Carradine for one film, but unbeknownst to Carradine shot scenes for three films. I find that story a bit hard to believe. I don't see how Carradine would not realise that he was playing three different characters.

Be that as it may, this is a typical Mats Helge B-movie. Lots of shooting, explosions and fights, weak story and – for the most part – even weaker acting. Swedish bottom-of-the-barrel actors trying speak American English. And all this is not helped by the substandard quality of the DVD release. Barely better than VHS video and audio quality.

Unless you're really interested in Swedish B-movies, or you are a die hard fan of David Carradine, there is very little reason to watch this film. And I strongly suspect that the same goes for the other two Mats Helge / David Carradine movies (The Mad Bunch and Fatal Secret). I doubt that any of them are available outside of Sweden anyway.
My rating

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd



Booker
Richard Grieco stars as Dennis Booker, a rebellious ex-cop who leaves the beat to work for a private investigation agency owned by a large corporate conglomerate in this acclaimed 21 Jump Street spinoff series. Booker's offbeat appearance and resistance to authority brands him a renegade investigator in the eyes of his straight laced colleagues.

Booker (Pilot Episode)
Booker gets a corporate security job. His secretary, Elaine, requires help in clearing a man she recently helped convict while serving on a jury.

My Thoughts:
While not as good as 21 Jump Street this is a good series. It did take me a while to get used to this character in his own series... since he was never a character I cared much about in the first series. But I was happy I gave it a chance. He does grow on you. The pilot episode (and a couple others) has some help from cast from 21 Jump Street. Both Peter DeLuise (Doug Penhal) and Steven Williams (Capt. Fuller) are guest stars in this series. I also enjoyed seeing Marcia Strassman (M*A*S*H, Welcome Back Kotter) in a series again.
