Beat my Expectations
30 May 2006 | by tom-1382See all my reviews

When I first discovered this film on a DVD that came free with a newspaper, my initial thoughts were a little negative. It didn't look like it would be particularly good, although I was drawn by the name of William Sanderson who I had seen in Babylon 5 and thought was very good in that.

So after five months, I picked up the DVD and began watching with very low expectations of the film itself. I was met by a film with some excellent acting, quality writing, a gripping plot and frequent action. The only aspect of the film that disappointed me was the special effects, which looked more like they came from 1965 than 1995. Besides that an excellent film with excellent qualities and a truly appalling sequel that I prefer to pretend doesn't exist.
