SPOILERY DISCUSSION BELOW!
Sometimes, when a film lacks in technical skill, it makes up for it in cheese. Blambo Part II is one of those films. Every second of this film is over the top, starting with our titular hero riding a missile into a building to reach his destination, to ripping off an enemy's head and throwing the head like a frisbee to decapitate another enemy. This film is one of the earlier examples of a "cult film" in the brickfilms community. It's technical qualities may have held back Blambo Part II from being remembered, if it wasn't for its memorable, ridiculous and quotable dialog.
