Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
It’s not often I want a sub two hour film to be longer but Electric Boogaloo The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films is one of those stories that is SO interesting and so intrinsically tied to my childhood love of crappy films that to tell the full story even more in depth across another two hours would have just added to the joy. If you grew up with a love of cheap exploitation and sci-fi films in the 80’s then chances are you too watched your fair share of Cannon Films, and almost all the key players are interviewed here. It’s a fascinating, scary and often compelling look at one of the wildest times in film history. A little more depth and an interview with Golan himself would have made this just perfect.
