Team America: World Police

Team America manages to save Paris from a terrorist attack, but the price has been high. One of their members has lost his life and the team will never be the same again. Spottswoode, the leader of Team America, goes out to find another man who would be suitable to join them and comes up with actor Gary Johnston. His formidable acting skills are necessary to infiltrate the terrorists and find out what they’re planning next. Although things go great at the beginning (despite some internal problems with members falling in love on each other), Gary’s work doesn’t prevent the bay of Panama being attacked. This results in Gary feeling guilty for all the lives that have been lost without him being able to do anything and therefore he decides to leave Team America who now have to face the terrorists alone.

Meanwhile, North Korean leader Kim Jung Il has provided the terrorists with weapons of mass destruction and wants to turn the world into chaos with the help of the Film Actor’s Guild (FAG) lead by the undefeatable Alec Baldwin…

Sound and Vision:
Well, as we’re used from Paramount with releases of recent movies, the image quality is again of top notch quality. There really isn’t much to say except that we didn’t spot anything that can spoil your viewing fun.

The same can be said about the soundtrack. The only minor thing in my opinion is that Trey Parker and Matt Stone should drop the singing in their movies as that can get quite annoying, but that doesn’t have anything to do with the technical qualities.

Extras:
There are a ton of extras provided on the DVD and they really give a good idea of everything that had to be done to create this movie. It’s really informative and will keep you occupied for quite some time. Next to that, the extras are quite funny as well and you get to know a whole lot of interesting facts like why the movie was shot with puppets (because Matt and Trey hate actors) Really great stuff and one of the best discs when it comes to extras I’ve seen in a long time.

Conclusion:
Total Insanity! That’s Team America described in two words. This movie doesn’t make any sense at all and that’s exactly what makes it so funny. Think of The Thunderbirds going mad and add a whole lot of spice from South Park and you’ll get a pretty good idea of what to expect. This is probably the biggest movie featuring puppets in history and to be honest: there’s no reason not to buy it ! The image and sound quality are top notch, the extras are fantastic and the movie itself is just hilarious!

Our Score:
9.0
