YMMV / Rocket Attack USA

Go To

  • Anvilicious / Glurge: A general sighs, "If only we had an operating anti-missile device, we could give some hope to those people out there." Stupid government, spending its time on cheese price support!
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The scene with the blind man.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Or Harsher in Hindsight - yeah, the military needs more money from the US government.
  • No Budget: The film was done so cheaply, it's hard to believe it's a 1961 film, more resembling one of the roadshow films of The '40s.
  • Advertisement:
  • Special Effects Failure: The cartoonish shots of the Russian missile as it makes its way towards New York City.
  • The Woobie: The helpless blind man who says "Help me!" was intended as one. Instead, it just comes off as baffling.

How well does it match the trope?
