Great little film.
31 August 2011 | by wb010b4494See all my reviews

Compared with todays frenetic, kinetic, fast cutting, CGI laden crap this actually holds up fairly well.

I liked the actors, I liked the characters (each with a clear motivation) and I liked the settings. It was well shot, well edited and well written. And you know what, the story held my interest. Not like a lot of what I see today (story often gets lost over a 'great shot' or pointless effect).

Yes, the special fx are very 80's with some matte lines but I am very forgiving about that, this film is over 20 years old after all. Like the original Star Wars Trilogy (before George tinkered with it again, and again, and again), this film is best enjoyed with all it's flaws.

A simple film, well told story and great characters. A really good family film.
