Brilliant brain surgeon Banzai (Peter Weller) just made scientific history. Shifting his Oscillation Overthruster into warp speed, he's the first man ever to travel to the Eight Dimension...and come back sane! But when his sworn enemy, the demented Dr. Lizardo (John Lithgow), devises a plot to steal the Overthruster and bring an evil army of aliens back to destroy Earth, Buckaroo goes cranium to cranium with the madman in an extra-dimensional battle that could result in total annihilation of the universe!

The decade that taste forgot - The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension review by Kurtz

Spoiler Alert
05/01/2010

I was hoping that this might be a satirical send-up of science-fiction/adventure movies from Lucas and Spielberg but it was all a bit of a mess and the humour- I mean, it was surely too daft to take itself seriously, wasn’t it?- was lost in a whirlwind of dreadful eighties music and fashions. When the fate of mankind rests in the hands of a be-gelled Peter Weller who’s dressed like an extra from “Miami Vice”, it’s time to make your peace with your Maker. As well as Weller, Jeff Goldblum, Ellen Barkin and Clancy Brown of “Highlander” fame also waste their (and our) time.
