International Guerillas (1990)

aka International Gorillay

How bad is it? It's so bad I can't tell if it's a parody or not.
Should you see it? If you speak Urdu and aren't an Islamic militant and have three hours, maybe.

Three men in Batman costumes chase identical Salman Rushdie clones, get crucified (with their mom!), are rescued by divine lightning and then Rushdie is attacked by Holy Books.


After the fatwa on Rushdie, this film came out marking him as a mastermind out to kill all Muslims. The three brothers who are criminals at the start of the film are made heroes. There are also five musical numbers. The film runs almost three hours - and the credits come in 1/3 the way through - and there are the usual boom mikes and continuity errors. The strangest thing, and this is a very very strange movie, is that the women are all portrayed as sex objects, which seems to be contrary to the philosophy of the film.
