If you're the type of person who enjoys reconstituted survival food, then perhaps you also would like to try out Movie-In-A-Can (tm).

Our latest offering is Shadow Conspiracy. It goes a little something like this: Our hero, who works for the government, gets told "There is a Shadow Conspiracy in the Government," and BAM! the chase is on!

The rest of the movie is a pointless exercise wherein the hero runs and runs and runs, and no matter where he goes, the evil gubmint conspirators know exactly where to look. He could teleport to a cave in outer Mongolia, and, in five minutes, his pursuers would be hot on his tail.

This is yet another Evil Government Conspiracy that exists solely for the sake of being an Evil Government Conspiracy. There doesn't seem to be any real goal or purpose to it; I guess civil servants just aren't cool unless they hang with these guys.

I'd give this one two turkeys. It's exceedingly torturous to watch, the bad parts aren't even funny-bad, they're just bad.

Response From RinkWorks:

I watched this movie. My girlfriend had the good sense to stop watching it after the first five minutes, because she had already figured out who the "secret badguy" was. I kept holding out hope that she was wrong, and the movie would do something unexpected. But it didn't, and I'd wasted two hours while she'd read a book.
