one of the best shorts ever made
12 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

this film contains everything what a great movie should contain: a hero played by a guy like bogey, cary grant or sean connery, a beautiful girl like marylin, liz taylor or brigitte bardot and a super-evil villain like godzilla, dr.no, the creature from the black lagoon, frankenstein or dracula. a love story, a spectacular chase and a enormous good against bad- final battle the animation technique is genious and till 2003 unique in the history of filmmaking. never before somebody came to the idea of making a movie only from footage of other famous films. mr.vidrichs masterpiece. but who knows what comes next...
