Pretty damn good!
17 August 2000 | by sianhazelSee all my reviews

This movie is great story-telling. Also some of the acting is very fine, particularly the lead actress. Some of the shots are really beautiful and, like the best of movies, the pace is just right. It is an adventure story and also a revered sci-fi classic--so being faithful to the story and still keeping it exciting was a tall order, but it works very well, all in all.
