Still as good as ever...
7 December 2001 | by XLuciferXSee all my reviews

I'll admit there is a lot of cheesey stuff in this movie. But how can you not like it? I like it as much as I did when I first saw it back in the '80s. Movies are for entertianment value, being over cricitcal and not just enjoying it for what it is, is a shame. This movie offers you cool stunts, comedy, in general good fun. So what if the missiles don't hit their intended targets? Or the fact that they fit all of those buggies, motorcycles on 2 C-130s? Heck half the movies today don't get it right 90% of the time. I just hope it will come out on DVD some day.
