Whatever rating I give BOOM is only because of the superb location photography of Sardinia and Rome. Otherwise, this is only for hardcore addicts of ELIZABETH TAYLOR (her downward phase), and RICHARD BURTON (his miscasting phase). Tennessee Williams wrote &quot;The Milk Train Doesn&#39;t Stop Here Anymore&quot; and is supposed to be very fond of this adaptation of his play--but apparently, he was the only one. Taylor reportedly hated it and Burton needed the money.<br/><br/>Whatever, it amounts to a hill of beans with Taylor posturing and fuming in her shrill manner, exploding at the servants and exchanging bad baby-talk with no less than NOEL COWARD who seems to be a visitor from another film when he finally appears.<br/><br/>It&#39;s so campy that among Taylor fans it&#39;s probably considered a &quot;must see&quot; kind of thing. But if you can sit through this one without a drink in your hand, you&#39;re way ahead of me. Sadly, this is the film that signified the end of Taylor being taken seriously as a film actress, even after winning two Oscars. For Burton, it was equally disastrous and the critics called it a BOMB. Judge for yourself if you dare.

Is rich, ailing Elizabeth Taylor courting the Angel of Death on her island fortress in the Mediterranean or is she just overreacting--or, more precisely, overacting--as usual? Actually, both are applicable in director Joseph Losey&#39;s meandering, over-the-top camp-drama &quot;Boom!&quot;, appropriately-titled since tempers in the lush, luxurious setting are nearly ready to explode. Richard Burton climbs Taylor&#39;s mountain uninvited; she dresses him in a samurai&#39;s robe complete with sword. One has to wonder what the stars thought they were doing: Taylor is too young for her role, Burton too old for his. Though handsomely-presented in widescreen, the film is alternately abrasive and maddening, though it&#39;s a must-see for Liz &#39;n Dick-philes; the couple&#39;s collective &quot;what the hell&quot; attitude to their late-&#39;60s film careers reached an ego-mad nadir here. Screenwriter Tennessee Williams, adapting his unsuccessful play &quot;The Milk Train Doesn&#39;t Stop Here Anymore&quot;, was reportedly quite fond of the picture, and cult director John Waters has said it&#39;s his favorite film of all time. **1/2 from ****

I have an awful pan-and-scan videotape of &quot;Boom!&quot;, and I want to see it in all its widescreen glory. So I voted &quot;1&quot; and hope you will too. Together, we can pull this movie down into the pits of cinematic dross, and hope that someone will see an opportunity for BIG MONEY in releasing &quot;Boom!&quot; in its Director&#39;s Cut Extended Version. The movie is one of my howling favorites?you just look at the people involved, the director, the actors, the cameraman, and you say to yourself, &quot;Yep, I guess you can fool some of the people for a lot of time.&quot; Producers considering the DVD release of &quot;Boom!&quot; should note that, everywhere it&#39;s been shown, there have been sellout crowds in the theaters. But it hasn&#39;t been up to Frostbite Falls yet.
