Nukie is so bad that it’s the sole reason that Namibia is not a Singapore of Africa.
Back in the 80’s, it was a running joke that Africa is 5 years behind America. This is the case that proves it. E.T. was a big hit in 1982, and someone from Namibia saw it in 1987 and thought that he will make a few bucks from a rip off of it by making Nukie. There were two directors. Neither of them made anything good. One of them didn’t even make anything else.
This movie is so bad. There is nothing redeeming about it. Bad effects, bad dialogue, bad story, bad audio, bad acting. There was one shot where the camera was in focus.
Nukie is about two objects of energy that are traveling in space and, for no reason, they crash into earth. Space is a pretty big place. They are childlike so that means that their parents should be arrested for losing them. These two objects are called Nukie and Meeko. Nukie crashes in Africa and Meeko crashes into the USA. For some reason the USA military are able to detect it, capture it and run experiments on it. The scientists say that its not made of organic matter but then do organic matter experiments on it. Obviously the writers of this movie have brain damage. Then Nukie walks around a bush in Africa and talks to animals. They obviously don’t talk back because they are just animals. Then some humans meet him and want to shoot him using an arrow. Nukie can teleport or turn back into energy and fly around. This is an important fact because it means that they both could have turned back into energy and go back to space. Oh, they are originally a ball of light and then on the earth surface, they look like a deformed potato with a really runny nose.
so this movie could have ended in about a few seconds if it used logic. But no. Its 90 minutes long. For some reason, there is a hunter that wants to kill Nukie. For some reason, there are some kids that want to protect Nukie. For some reason, Nukie and Meeko can communicate. For some reason, Nukie runs from the hunter instead of flying. For some reason, Nukie and Meeko are reunited. For some reason, they take a chimpanzee with them
Do not ever watch this movie. Its retarded and the writers had brain damage.
