This Italian Star Wars cash-in may well have the greatest Eurotrash pedigree in cinema history:
Directed by Aldo Lado
Second Unit Director: Enzo Castellari
Special Effects Supervisor: Antonio Margeriti
Makeup: Giannetto De Rossi
Soundtrack: Ennio Morricone
As if this weren't enough, it also stars Barbara Bach, Ivan Rassimov and Richard Kiel! Hot damn!
Aldo Lado, director of the notorious L'Ultimo Treno della Notte, returned with this blatant but nonetheless entertaining imitation of Star Wars under the pseudonym "George B. Lewis." A crazed despot bent on world domination threatens to use the Kappa Element, a missile capable of turning its victims into humanoid zombies. Arthur Kennedy plays the deranged scientist who invented the missile, and Richard Kiel -- reunited here with Barbara Bach, with whom he co-starred as the metal-toothed Jaws in The Spy Who Loved Me -- plays a maniacal giant. Lado throws in a cutesy robot dog as well as a topless woman being tortured to keep things lively, and familiar genre faces like Corinne Clery, Ivan Rassimov, and Massimo Serato make appearances. Not as outlandish as other Italian riffs on the theme (notably Star Crash), there's still enough general silliness to keep camp-lovers amused. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide
The film even has its own website http://www.golobthehumanoid.com/
In English with forced Japanese subtitles.
Ripped from a DVD-r that was sourced from the Japanese VHS tape.
