For nearly four weeks, the cast and crew moved to Pinewood Studio's biggest stage used for the James Bond adventures, the "OO7 Stage", which measured 336' x 139' x 40'. Transformed into an eerie and clammy swampland, dotted with jagged trees and foaming eight-foot-deep pools, this ominous landscape of browns and yellows took over five months of construction. The special effects department created a superbly realistic quicksand mire in which some twenty unlucky technicians at one time or another found themselves. Director Peter Yates had to balance himself on a raft which floated on one of the many pools to survey the massive set. Particularly difficult shots demanded the camera operator don a wet-suit and immerse himself in either "quicksand" or one of the larger pools. See more »

Beyond time, beyond existence, lies the ultimate adventure
You must see this movie. It combines classic fantasy story telling with super cool action sequences and characterization. i saw this movie in the theater back in 1983 and was blown away by it. Wonderful acting combined with excellent storytelling, combined with a cool musical score gives you a modern classic. This is the kind of fantasy movie which reminds you how powerful love is. This is a wonderful date movie to watch because it reminds us that love is the most powerful emotion and experience on the planet. Add to this wonderful mix, liam niesson who always delivers an awsome performance and you have a movie that will excite and thrill. And once you see the glave, the ultimate weapon, you'll agree with me that this movie is number one in the cool books.
