As a Generation-Yer, I even liked it!
28 December 1999 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

Being from the Generation Y...the generation in love with technology and movies that cost millions to make and take about 50 computers to put the graphics together, I must say I loved this movie! It was greatly put together and made many great lines come across. One of the best of the '80's!
