Dash plays Lady, the leader of a gang of incredibly hot biker chicks (that sentence alone usually being enough to make the movie worth watching) who after pulling off a string of high profile crimes encounter an extremely unusual bar. Not that the bar itself is all that strange but the clientele certainly are, being a gang of robots disguised as humans. As with most robots in movies, these androids are out for world domination and to that end kidnap various members of the gang to assist them in their sinister quest. Lady and her remaining team have to rescue their friends and put a stop to the robots dastardly scheme but in doing so they uncover a plot deeper and more sinister than they could have possibly imagined.

Let’s get this straight. This is NOT a great movie. It’s a B movie that’s more of a “C” to be honest. But crucially, it manages to fall into the “so bad it’s good” territory and therefore becomes extremely watch able, especially if half drunk. Which by the look of it is what the director and most of the cast were just to get through it. The plot, for want of a better word, has more holes in it than your grandmother’s crochet and practically all of the performances are hysterically funny for all the wrong reasons. Clearly shot on the cheap, there are a lot of laughs to be had from the production values, including one priceless moment where an extra can be seen laughing at the goings on that he is involved in, clearly unable to believe that he is taking part in this farce. But it’s moments like this which give the movie it’s strange appeal. This isn’t a self aware spoof although if it was market as such then it might just get away with it. This is simply a dreadful movie. And utterly entertaining. It’s bubblegum for the mind and has the aforementioned hot biker chicks stealing every scene with their dangerous curves. Give it a go and be entertained.
