Zardoz Review


Weak
"The gun is good. The penis is evil!" Such is one of many howlers in Zardoz, John Boorman's paean to, well, to I don't know what, but this cross between a low-budget sci-fi movie and a porno flick ranks more with the penis than the gun. The plot involves Sean Connery as a savage in a 2200's dystopia (where they worship a giant rock called Zardoz), who makes his way into a society of nearly-naked immortals, where he wreaks havoc thanks to a computer made out of a large diamond. We'd be shocked by the stupidity if we weren't laughing so hard thanks to Connery's hot pants. If nothing else, Zardoz proves that anyone's career can survive a bad flick or two.
