Of course there is nothing inherently wrong with preaching to the converted -- secular Hollywood does it all the time. But I confess I wish the movie had some of the passion of The Passion of the Christ.
DS9 is by far my favorite show-- the acting is great, the script superb-- and the complete series is well worth the money spent, as you will be watching and re-watching for years to come. However, due to Paramount's apathy, some of the purchased DVDs may be \"clouded.\" The \"clouding\" of DVDs occur when the DVDs aren't allowed to cool long enough at production. If you do purchase this great television show set, which I do recommend, be sure to check that your DVDs function properly within the allotted time-frame for returns. Usually, a \"clouded\" DVD will work and only be a visual issue, but, sometimes, a clouded DVD will not function to expectations. I encountered this problem, but Walmart worked it out for me and I got a replacement.
Marshall's mash note to '80s postapocalyptic action-adventures re-creates the era's trashy pleasures with such scrupulous fidelity -- and distinct lack of irony -- that you'd swear the movie was unearthed from the ruins of a Times Square grind house.
