The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The Eighth Dimension combines humour, imagination, a little oriental mysticism and a host of star performances into a unique cult movie experience! Starring Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Ellen Barkin and Christopher Lloyd, this is a fiendishly clever, action-packed adventure and one of the most bizarre films of the 1980s.

Brilliant brain surgeon Banzai (Weller) has just made scientific history. Shifting his Oscillation Overthruster into warp speed, he`s the first man ever to travel to the Eight Dimension... and come back sane! But when his sworn enemy, the demented Dr. Lizardo (Lithgow), devises a plot to steal the Overthruster and bring an evil army of aliens back to destroy Earth, Buckaroo goes cranium to cranium with the madman in an extra-dimensional battle that could result in total annihilation of the universe!

It`s Colourful & fast Moving, You either get this film or goes over your head, this one went over my head. Ellen Barkin is lovely in it, though
