Judge Roy Hrab was amusemest minimus.
Our review of The Legend of Awesomest Maximus (Blu-ray), published March 20th, 2012, is also available.
Some guys are just awesomer.
Facts of the Case
A Trojan general, Awesomest Maximus (Will Sasso, College Road Trip), is responsible for maintaining peace between his country and Greece. Unfortunately, this dim oversexed doofus brings the two countries the brink of war…and other shenanigans.
There's little positive to take away from this experience. It's filled with gratuitous nudity, swearing, grossout humor, and vulgar jokes (gender, sexuality, race, you name it). This is juvenile humor to the extreme, a long string of poorly conceived material with unimaginative nods to recent sword and sandal pictures. The Legend Of Awesomest Maximus is loaded with characters like King Looney (Rip Torn, Wonder Boys), Testiclees (Ian Ziering, Beverly Hills 90210), Hotessa (Kristanna Loken, Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines), King Erotic (Khary Payton), and Minoritees (Tony Cox, Bad Santa). Hilarious, right?
Don't get me wrong. I like juvenile humor. Step Brothers is hilarious. But The Legend Of Awesomest Maximus is just painful. And the film was directed by Jeff Kanew, who was behind Revenge Of The Nerds. What gives?
Presented in standard definition 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, the visuals are clear and the color palette strong. Same for the Dolby 5.1 audio mix, which is robust and crisp. Mercifully, aside from the trailer, there are no extras.
The Legend Of Awesomest Maximus is trashy. Watch at your own risk.
