    Nice review James!

  • March 18, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    I absolutely, absolutely LOVE this movie. This was the GI JOE movie in the 80’s that should have been. LOVE THIS MOVIE! Not quite as great as Warrior of the Lost World, but up there in my book. Check out the poster sometime. The tagline: “DEEDS, NOT WORDS.” Words to live life by. Thanks for watching it!

    It was bad ass back then! lol

  • March 18, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    I love your movie reviews. You can take a movie that looks like complete crap and make it entertaining. Great stuff James!

    Badeebadeedeeb, Megaforce just turned me into an alcoholic.

  • March 18, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    lol! Great review! Isn’t he the mayor from Spin City?

    Wow! that’s an obscure film alright.

    Region 2 DVD: There could be some other regions as well out there.

    Also check out the awesome song Megaforce by Deck Jagger. It shares the name with the movie and also includes voices from the movie.

      707 did the theme to Megaforce which featured Tod Howarth from Frehley’s Comet!

  • March 18, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    Unnecessary fact: Metallica’s first record label was Megaforce Records who released Kill ’em All πŸ™‚

    Did you know that Mega Force also had a Atari 2800 video game? And yes you get to fly the motorcycles if i remember it right.

  • March 18, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    Lots of boom filled movie action as far as I can see.

    p.s. check out the TMNT here:

    This is to Delta Force (and similar movies) what Deathstalker is to Conan etc.

  • March 18, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    Awesome. I’ve always loved that stupid-ass ending. It’s so lame.

    u should review the warriors (1979) its so fuckin classic

  • Schloss Ritter

    March 18, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    The smoke from the front of the bikes is probably to help disguise the stunt drivers, eh?

    The flying motorcycle gag reminded me of Flash Gordon… but worse.

    A classic…of sorts.

  • March 19, 2011 at 2:23 am

    Mega Force looks like a better version of Warrior of the Lost World.

    Um. Yo JOE!!!!!

    I tried to look it up on eBay and all I found were baits!

    I still don’t really get it. There are plenty of worse movies that get DVD release.

    Btw it’s Barry flippin Bostwick! When you see him in Spin City and his little roles in shows like Supernatural and Glee you wouldn’t think he made a movie like this in the past… but I recognised that grin of his the instance I saw it, beard or no.

    I was excited to see this review. I put up a Megaforce review a few months back and didn’t think anybody else remembered this beast.

  • March 19, 2011 at 11:27 am

    All I get is a white square where a movie player should be.

  • March 19, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Hey! Dallas is Swan from The Warriors!!!

    love the movie reviews ,James. Defiantly sounds like a movie to laugh at with friends.

  • March 19, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    Sure doesn’t look like low budget, never heard of it though.

  • March 19, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    “Man, that’s tighter than a chipmunk’s @s$hole stretched over a soda can.”

    Why don’t we get that kind of swearing in A.V.G.N. anymore?

    Whatever, I like movies better than video games anywho.


    March 19, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    “We’re sorry, this video is no longer available.”
    what the fuck?

  • bugashi

    March 21, 2011 at 1:36 am

    Good reasons why it’s not on DVD, though now I kinda wonder what other obscure flicks that never got a DVD release. Any thoughts about an obscure movie marathon?

  • CoindoorDave

    March 21, 2011 at 4:42 pm

    How about a review of the Atari 2600 cart for this film? πŸ˜‰

    From the legends I’ve heard this movie was supposed to be a GIJoe film to coincide with the release of the action figures, just like Cyborg with VanDamne was going to be a sequal to Masters of the Universe. As lame as this film is it is still better than the shite gijoe we got in 09

    I saw this at the Latchis Theater in Claremont NH, back in the day. The theater is gone, but Megaforce lives on!!! Also, the bad guy in this was Burt Reynolds nemesis in “Sharky’s Machine”. Gotta love the 80’s.

    Saw this in the theatre when I was about ten years old. Thought it was awesome at the time. Caught it again somwhere within the last ten years and after fifteen minutes I could not believe I ever sat through it. Thanks for digging this out James.

    Also check out Spacehunter 3D with Molly Ringwald.
    Treasure of the Four Crowns in 3D also blew my mind back then.
    Total crap movies even if you love crap movies but when your ten and the movie is in 3D…

  • March 29, 2011 at 9:04 am

    What a wonderful little gem! Btw, there is a Dallas in Alien as well.

    I just watched Megaforce today. I found it a fun piece of cheese that is worth a watch if you want to be simple. Its one of those bad movies that so bad its good.

    My fav joke from the film was when we first meet egg, suprised you didnt mention its so bad.
    Dallas “here comes the egg. And that no yoke!”
    The Egg “When a person doesnt have less on, they have?”
    Dallas ” more on”

    This would have been a perfect movie for Mystery Science Theater 3000. I could see Joel or Mike and the robots at the bottom of the screen making comments about this movie. Also, the actress from Star Trek was in a movie called Warrior of the Lost World that was featured on MST3K.

    I’ve got some good news for you, James and Megaforce fans alike.

    I was flipping through Amazon and I found this:

    Please feel free to thank me.

  • May 22, 2014 at 4:41 pm

    Megaforce was the equivalent in 1982 of todays Michael Bay movies in that despite trying to pretend to be an adult movie it only really works if your a young boy. I didn’t see it until 1984 when my Grandfather randomly bought me the VHS for Christmas (I’d never heard of it until then). I was 8 and I really enjoyed it. I haven’t seen the full film since the tape was eaten by the family VHS player in the late 80s and as I still have fond memories, perhaps that is for the best. Lol. I have always felt it was about the most 80s movie from the 80s. Not the best by a long way, but the most 80s for sure.

    He also happens to be Brad Majors ( “Say, any of your know how to Madison?” ) from Rocky Horror Picture show, so “ASSHOLE!!!!!!!” ( surprised YOU didn’t think to say that ).
