Review by Chauncey Hicks (yeah. apparently i reat movies now) (posted on 10-Aug-2005)

I think this movie was really a pioneering effort from Trey Parker and Matt Stone. And the fact that they didn't want to have to hire actors. But, nevertheless, it once again shows the genius of the two fathers of South Park.

South Park like violence, and a familiar feel as to when watching South Park.

For a movie shot with puppets, the production values are actually through the roof. They've got fire and explosion seens, detailed replicas of buildings, cars, and great camera work.

The voice talents of Trey Parker are simply amazing as well. He can fit his voice into every situation, as shown in the somewhat cheesy anthem, "America, F*ck Yeah!", which just sets the mood as the team completely destroys Paris, but saves them from terrorists. I mean, just think about the name for a minute. His voice talents can also be shown in the broadway musical in the film, "Everyone has Aids", and his country song "Freedom isn't Free". And fans of the South Park episode entitled "Asspen" will be thrilled to hear the more beefed up version of the song "Montage", which, oddly enough, is a montage. In the song "I'm so Ronery (Lonely)", it shows how everydictator and supreme ruler must see themselves as these good people that just want to make the world better... for themselves.

And finally, the most important part, the actual Story. If you dig beneath the the silly and hilarious jokes and gags, you'll find an amazing story that both kind of pokes fun at the US Army AND Kim Jong Il. The script is not only full of hilarious lines, but the gags are nonstop. Like how after a huge montage of Gary getting plastic surgery to look arabian -- well, i'll just let you see for yourselves. It also pokes fun at the arabian language. It simply consists of "durka durak allah. durka jurka, muhhammed jihad. bak allah. baukalakadka." Also, if you've seen the unrated DVD with the extra minute of footage, then you know what I'm Talking about. But for those who don't, its a sex scene. Might i add a suprisingly vulgar (in a good/funny way) sex scene at that. But please keep in mind, they're freakin puppets.

The reason, however why I give the movie 3 and a half stars instead of 4 stars is because it just doesn't seem to have the soul that other Trey Parker and Matt Stone movies posses, such as South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut, and Cannibal! The Musical. But, nonetheless, Team America: World Police is simply a great movie.

I think this movie was really a pioneering effort from Trey Parker and Matt Stone. And the fact that they didn't want to have to hire actors. But, nevertheless, it once again shows the genius of the two fathers of south park. The first thing anyone would notcie is that it is done entirely in marionette puppets, and that it is done with practicly no CGI enhancements. The only CGI in the film is the flashy intro to the movie and part of the end credits. You'll find that with the puppets comes an entire world that had to be constructed and operated with. You see places such as Paris, TIme Square, Mt. Rushmore,parts of Africa and Panama, and of course, North Korea. One thing that came with the puppets is all of the south park like violence, and a familiar feel as to when watching south park. For a movie shot with puppets, the production values are actually through the roof. They've got fire and explosion seens, detailed replicas of buildings, cars, and great camera work.
