“Michael Madsen (“Sin City, “Kill Bill” Vol 1 & Vol 2) stars in this gritty thriller that will shock your senses! Waylon and Buddy volunteer to go to a medical experiment facility as a way to avoid prison. But an even worse fate awaits in a doctor’s sick surgery plans to transform each of them into an Ultimate Killing Machine.”
“UKM – The Ultimate Killing Machine” is not rated.
As already mentioned, the acting is pretty bad. The kids, who are supposed to be Americans, have distinctly Canadian accents. What’s that all ‘aboot’? And as they lay on their rebellious routines, it seems to be a big stretch of their acting abilities. Even with Michael Madsen on board, there’s little he can do to salvage this sinking ship.
The aforementioned low budget sets are also kind of amusing, especially during the big finale. As the military facility is about to go out in a huge explosion, the lead characters run off screen and the picture goes to white with an explosion sound effect. It seemed more like something from a high school film project than a serious motion picture. It doesn’t appear that those Canadian tax credits went to good use.
Unless you like B-Movies or if you simply want to laugh at a movie, pass on “UKM The Ultimate Killing Machine.”
