Enjoyable, but not mind stretching
6 April 1999 | by (Reading, UK) – See all my reviews

Finally got around to watching my tape of the film being shown on BBC. At first I didn't recognise Michael Biehn and was about to trash it, but then I did and, on the basis of really enjoying him in Aliens, I watch Deep Red.

Well at the end of ~90 minutes, I wouldn't say I was mentally challenged, but I'd still recommend it as a basic enjoyable movie -if you're into sci-fi, nanotechnology, and the good guy winning.
