This movie really isn't that bad! I know it bombed severely at the box office but on video it's definitely worth a go.
Although I enjoy this film - I'm not saying it's great by any stretch of the imagination - there are some severely dire moments. Particularly poor are some of the special effects, but on the whole they're not bad for the early eighties.
Richard Jordan wasn't miscast at all, I feel that he and Jason Robards did incredibly good acting on this film (as always) and even Anne Archer isn't as annoying as she became later on in her career.
Anyway, it really isn't as bad as all they other comments on this page would have you believe, so if you haven't seen it give it a go.
