The Villain

Title: The Villain
Year: 1979
Director: Hal Needham
Writer: Robert G. Kane
Starring: Kirk Douglas, Ann-Margret, Arnold Schwarzenegger
Music: Bill Justis
Length: 89 minutes
Synopsis: basically a live-action road runner cartoon
How I saw it: on video a number of times, most recently (rented from Netflix) April 2008
Subjective Rating: 1/10 (Eew get it away).
Objective Rating: 1/10 (gets a point for concept) c. 1.2/4 (Bad).

Terrible, terrible movie. It has no comedic timing, so none of the (stolen) gags are funny. The writing is terrible. They clearly didn’t even bother writing dialog in a few places (which is really painful in Arnold’s case). And it just kept going…
