Good but dated
17 August 2007 | by (South Korea) – See all my reviews

You have to understand... this movie was made in 1990. That's about the time half the members of IMDb were born. (sorry, couldn't resist).

This movie is a spectacle to see, but only visually. For a lot of the commentary is either common knowledge now or the circumstances have changed.

As you watch this film, you'll understand why the world is the way it is today. That is, even the "experts", the people who made this film, did not know what would happen in the future.

But those who say this film is nothing to shout about, well, they're just wrong. This movie is a pioneer in environmental awareness and most of all, an achievement in filming as scenes in this movie were never seen before by man.

So, if you ever see this movie and say "oh, it's nothing new..." Think before you speak. This movie was made when the Green House Effect was "imaginary"...
