There are some great performances by the young cast including Hassie Harrison and Tom Plumley and some killer cameos from sci-fi cult regulars such as Jay and Silent Bob’s Kevin Smith, Star trek the next generations Wil Wheaton and horror regular Lin Shaye.
This Sci-fi/Action romp is so damn good, it’s a fun film that keeps on giving. comic book fans, horror and sci-fi fans will love this beast of a film it’s a laugh a minute ride into sci-fi hell.
I really adored this film. Max Reload and the Nether Blasters is late Saturday night entertainment, the type of film you can watch with your friends with a large bucket of chicken or popcorn and a few beers. Max Reload and the Nether Blasters seems to have slipped somewhat under the radar but this will ultimately become a cult classic among fans of the genre!
Fans of B-movies and gamers will freaking love this epic nostalgic beast!
This 80’s throwback has some awesome homage’s to films of yesteryear and who doesn’t’ like a film with a killer powerglove in it!
All round awesomeness, if you love Stranger things you will love this one!
5-star fun all the way!
