REVIEW:

Some films just shouldnít be made. In fact that could be a whole genre in and upon itself.

Reign of the Gargoyles is one of those. Or, at a minimum, the script should have been revised a few more times before going to film.

It takes place during World War II. Naziís uncover and bring to life a mythical gargoyle, which in turn can bring to life all other gargoyles. The Naziís intend to control it and use the gargoyles as their ultimate weapon but fail.

Subsequently the gargoyles attacked a group of American B-52 bombers, forcing the Grey Ghost to crash. After crashing the flyboys hook up with an English Airborne squad and a young, beautiful local female and set out to stop the gargoyles. But first they must find the Spear of Destiny. The Naziís hot on their trail.

The script itself has the pre-requisite plot points and character arc and thatís it. The film plays to so many clichťs and stereotypes that it is almost ridiculous Ė including a character that starts out as an arrogant, selfish jackass but becomes the hero in the end. Add to that the lack of any characterization and you have a flat, uninteresting film. No matter how hard the actors try, they still come off as wooden. The story itself falls into every trap possible with plot holes so big one would think the script was bombed.

What makes a movie really move and engrossing is the act of discovery; the main characters discovering what is going on and deciding to do something about. However, Reign of the Gargoyles takes the easy way out. Instead of the characters discovering what is going on and figuring out what to do Ė they are told what to do.

For some unknown reason a young, beautiful dark hair woman in a village knows exactly what is going on, what the Naziís have done and how to stop the gargoyles. She even know the whereabouts of the Spear of Destiny, something people have been searching centuries for. To her, this all seems like common knowledge.

The Naziís seem like an afterthought in the entire film. Their motivation is never clearly defined. Are they seeking to capture the falling flyboys, since they seem to know they crashed and where they are heading? Are they looking for some way to control the gargoyles? Or are they themselves looking for a way to stop what they unleashed?

Then there are the gargoyles themselves, which further add to the perplexity of this movie. The main gargoyle is flesh and blood, but canít be hurt by anything other than the Spear of Destiny. All the other gargoyles are stone, but exploded upon being shot. Since when does stone explode upon being shot?

If this review feels off keel and disjointed, then you know how I felt watching this movie. I wrote it purposely this way, to convey the feeling of how the movie comes across: disjointed, full of holes, wooden characters, lack of motivation and for some reason characters who know things they shouldnít.

The only real saving grace is Joe Penny as the Major, and thatís just because itís nice to see him in starring role again.

Reign of the Gargoyles is really not a good film. But if you want to see World War II action and exploding stone gargoyles, by all mean give it a try. After all, there are much worse films out there.
