About Team America: World Police
This sharp-shooting satire not only takes aim at Bush’s war on terror, but also pumps a few rounds into the 'Black Hawk Down' school of cinema along the way. Filmed using Thunderbird style puppets, we follow the exploits of the Dirty Dozen-esque 'Team America' as they try save the word from WMD smuggling dictator Kim Jong II and assorted other leftwing loonies. A riotous romp through action-flick clichés, puppet sex and characters like weapons inspector Hans Bwix, it’s not surprising to find the hands of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone at the other end of the marionettes string. Think Apocalypse now meets Punch & Judy and you’re half way there!
