This movie took many interesting twists and turns. It showed that even then we did not know how to deal with the threat of American's being kidnapped and how much danger we put reporters in to get close to the story. The only thing I was disappointed in was I would have liked a little more back history, on Sis's family (since she and her brother call each other Sis and Brother) and on how Sis and Jerry met. You see her deep love for her husband yet they both seem so different from one another.
On a side note it was interesting to see Marlo Thomas as a blonde.
I am confused since the plot of the previous movie he made and this one sound so alike - but I haven't seen the other movie - I will watch the dollar bin for that one, since that is where I got this one.
I was a great way to spend an afternoon - (we had watched Pumping iron earlier in the week and thought it was Karma to find this movie in the WalMart bin)
It has the most interesting way of killing someone I have ever seen - Smash them - run them over - and toss them in the trash (literally) -
The beautiful landscapes - the blue skies - the mountains, that made it fun to watch - Franco is no Arnold - but it almost made it better.
If you figure out the plot any better though - please let me know - plus the ties to the Alive movie - was one just a re-do of the other? Because it seemed if they were the same that the senator would be meeting him for the first time - again - and should really watch his mistresses locations better. (I am going by the review of the 1995 flick)
Not sure why I never heard of this movie when it came out. I wasn't in the cave then. So pull that spare change out of your couch and take a take a ride on the wild side. It all will be worth it.
On a scale of 1 to ten I rate Last Starfighter a 10.5 and Megaforce a 2 (but still love it) so a 7 isn't all that bad.
