"Dick punch!"

FILM: 6/10.

Alright, let me lay it out straight: Lieutenant Jangles isn't exactly winning any awards for quality filmmaking. Shot on the cheap, deliberately crass, and not exactly reaching for the stars, you might wonder, "Why the heck did I watch this?"

But here's the kicker - it's an unapologetic slice of Ozploitation, and hell, anything goes. For us Aussies, the humour hits the bullseye... if you're willing to let it. I mean, where else can you witness two cops being put in their place with a good ol' punch in the dick, delivering a message of respect for women in the most Aussie way imaginable? It's irreverence on steroids, taking a wrecking ball to boundaries.

Now, let's talk production. With a budget that wouldn't cover a decent barbecue, Lieutenant Jangles flaunts stock visual effects, wildly fluctuating video that looks like it's having an identity crisis. And drone shots with more jagged edges than a Smith's potato chip. The audio? Passable, but not exactly stealing the show.

The cast? They're not aiming for Oscar-worthy, but damn, they look like they're having a bloody brilliant time. Action scenes are cheesier than a slab of cheddar, and the dialogue? You'll either be rolling your eyes or chuckling - possibly both. Warning: you might question your life choices during this cinematic adventure.

This film is like Vegemite - an acquired taste. Not for everyone, and the Aussie humour might get lost in translation internationally. But right here in the land Down Under, Lieutenant Jangles is bound to tickle the fancy of a certain crew of genre film fans. Give it a crack if you're up for a wild, budget-busting ride with a distinctly Aussie flavour. It's destined to o be a guilty pleasure. Besides, if you don't like it, Lieutenant Jangles is going to punch you in the dick.

This is going to piss some people off badly and make others so happy. It feels like an intentional troll on the audience sometimes which I loved personally. It's making fun of 80s movie tropes and the whole retro nostalgia craze and movie structure at the same time.

I couldn't understand all the slang but I got the jist of it. Highly impressive that it was a group of buddies screwing around and making this as it looks pretty polished compared to so much stuff that looks like it was shot over a weekend. The soundtrack is phenomenal too.

If you love satire movies like the naked gun or scary movie you will absolutely love this as I did.

Hits rock bottom after two minutes and continues to dig

I normally love pastiche movies. And it has lots of promise, but doesn't deliver on any of them. The acting is below school play standards, the 'shot like it's the eighties' theme gets old within minutes. It's just excruciatingly awful. Please don't waste your time.
