As with too many of Charles Band’s flicks from any era of his career, the impression that one gets from Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn (1983) is one of impoverishment. Here, working as the director under his producer father, he tries to realize an epic yet incomprehensible script with leaden dialogue via a handful of bad actors, a score of extras, some shoddy special effects, and an acre of scrubland, all tied together with a gimmick: the theatrical 3-D process which boomed and busted in 1983.
