Team America : World Police : Movie Review

Team America: World Police (2004)I felt about Team America the way I felt about many of the Monty Python episodes that didn't work: good try, some funny and clever ideas, but not really worth the time. In fact, Team America's problem really is one of time. This superhero satire, which has lots of serious, semi-serious, and not-at-all-serious things to say about the current state of the world, is about an hour longer than it needs to be. There's roughly 30 minutes of good stuff in Team America… but that leaves more than an hour of sub-par filler. As a result, this movie is more of a curiosity than a fully formed motion picture. It will have adherents, to be sure, but I am not among them.
