for what it's worth, 18 April 2005
Author: epimetheus_prime from United States

I remember this film quite well, when VCR's first hit the market and were way expensive - my mother would go to the video store and pay $15.00 a week to rent a top loader (yeah) and the first movie I picked out was this one. I enjoyed the hell out of it. My mother wondered about me and I think she grew tired of my constant renting of this movie, but It was kinda "magic" for a kid (before the special effects of the day were refined). I would recommend to someone to watch at least once. Of course I think jack woods went on to much bigger and better things - THink of this as his college film depute. The acting and clothes will be very dated but hey - it only cost $2.00 at the time. Good luck on finding a copy though.
