Team America - World Police
Short plot summary

Team America are a group of puppets here to save the puppet world. A brilliantly savage satire attacking what is seen by many outside the USA as a heavy-handed American military, unelected actors who take it on themselves to campaign against political wars, puppet movies, Kim Jong Il the North Korea dictator / Elvis impersonator, action movies and Ben Affleck.

What our panel of critics thought

"Not better than South Park The Movie, but a good second."

"One of the best vomit scenes since The Exorcist, although thankfully this time only 20,000 people died."

"Oh! Bravisimo vomit totalianismo!"

"I like totally agree that burning the US flag should be a criminal offense and all, but what if I was to burn my red white and blue boxer shorts? Does that make me a bad man?"

"How dare those rapscallion Americans make Kim Jong Il out to be such a sweet little man with a delightful speech impediment?"

"I knew a Jill Kong once, she had problems with her r's too, and was frequently ill... will these paradoxes ever end?"

Please tell me the ending or plot overview if necessary

Our heroes are joined by actor Gary who has been recruited by Team America's supremo Spotswood to save the world. As an actor, Gary has to use his acting powers to extract information from terrorists.

I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E. is a computer system used by Team America to locate areas of terror in the world. It is blown up in a suicide attack (by Michael Moore) and the team are left to fight for themselves. Gary, who has a life crisis in the middle of the movie, returns, and, after a spot of Spotswood's wood (we crack ourselves up sometimes), helps free Team America who have been imprisoned by Kim Jong Il.

The actors fight Team America but come off badly in a puppet blood, giblet and goo fest never seen before on the big screen.

Kim Jong Il turns into a beetle and escapes planet Earth in a space ship. Team America live on to fight another day. Hooray!

Dr Bravisimo-Encore II Movie Review

A whoop-ass of a movie. A gorgeous monstrosity of brilliance. A better satirical wet slapping with a herring is simply not imaginable. And yes you CAN see the strings!

For those brought up on Captain Scarlet, the Thunderbirds and their ilk you are in for a treat. For those not, welcome to Puppet Reality!

Every level is dealt with superbly in this picture. Is there anything these guys can't lampoon? If you agree with me that South Park The Movie is probably the greatest movie comedy ever made then don't miss this effort. This movie is not as good as South Park The Movie, but you will have fun trying to find why it isn't.

Plaudits to Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the directors, writers and voice talent in this movie, who are undoubtedly the new Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's on the block. Wonderful.

Quotable quotes (real)
"Freedom isn't free, it costs folks like you and me."
"I'm so ronery, so ronery, so sadry arone."
"I need you like Ben Affleck needs acting school."
