Good soundtrack
11 June 2003 | by (Near Munich) – See all my reviews

Actually, the movie is the type of bad 80s movie with a lot of bad taste. Just look at the clothes or the badly filmed mild action scenes in the movie. But the soundtrack is simply brilliant. What a pity that George Kranz has now vanished into the great wide open and heasn´t been heard of again.
