Roller Blade Warrior: Taken By Force
Roller Blade Warriors
Nomination Year: 2010
SYNOPSIS: Like Roller Blade, but with a more sensible plot and watered-down weirdness. Or in other words, less interesting.
An Oracle is being escorted by Sister Karin Cross to safety. The Oracle can sense danger as well as infusing people with a sense of purpose, and other miscellaneous minor mental abilities. Of course, she gets snuck up on and captured. There's a group of baddies that need women to feed to The Mysterious Monster In The Stack at Abaddon. Karin Cross tracks The Oracle. Sister Karin has to kill some bad guys. No "our weapons are tools of love" for this Roller Nun.
Meanwhile, Mother Speed (a younger woman than the first Mother Speed, and showing a disturbing amount of cleavage) dispatches two other Roller Nuns (one of whom is Sister Sharon from the first film) to track down and return with Karin and The Oracle.
Pretty much the rest of the movie is people walking, interspersed with poorly-choreographed fight scenes.
- Most Ludicrous Premise
Nuns On The
The mysterious voiceover sets up the movie for us. A roller nun ("sister of the order of the Roller Blade") is escorting a woman (a seer) from a mountaintop monastery to the safety of the Temple of the Roller Blade.
- Stupidest-Looking Monster
For certain values of "okay."
Sister Karin finally tracks down the Oracle, who has been left as a sacrifice for The Thing In The Tower. "Everything's gonna be okay! I'm gonna get you out here!" she says. Which is the cue for the poo-monster (wearing moon boots) to show up and attack them! And what a shitty monster it is!
- Acting Appropriately Stupid
Gullible Order of the Roller Blade, maybe....
The two veteran Sisters of the Holy Order of the Roller Blade are seeking the lost Oracle and Sister Karin. They espy a couple of sketchy-looking guys. "Look, they have water!" says one. "We gonna trust them?" asks the other. Of course, they do.
