What kind of drug-fueled bender led to the making of this film?
Casper Van Dien, late of Starship Troopers plus a hundred hack SyFy films, stars as a US Senator traveling to Russia to speak to their Parliament. He freaks out during his televised address and warns the corrupt politicians that they will all turn into rats…yeah, everyone is laughing until they start turning into CGI rats. It’s not so funny now, is it?
First off, the plot was bonkers. It wasn’t that it didn’t make sense – it was clearly trying to be an allegory of our corrupt political system. The problem is that if every corrupt politician turned into a rat tomorrow, there wouldn’t be riots…there would be PARADES. Literally NO ONE would give a shit. Second, the story doesn’t conclude – the film just…ends. It’s like the filmmaker saw Easy Rider and was like YEAH! That’s not how that works, that’s not how ANY of this works.
I love “so bad, it’s good” movies – they’re my favorite. Sadly, Ratpocalypse is just BAD. I do not recommend.
