A lot of care and attention were obviously devoted to selecting locations, designing sets, and grooming handlebar mustaches. Much less attention went to making one believe that any of the events took place circa 1879.
This is one of my favorite movies. There were a lot of attempts to bring back the Western during this erar, but I believe that this was one of the finest. Val Kilmer give one great performances! You will fall in love with this film if you give it a chance!
The attempt to extract the essences of several genres (cold-war submarine thriller, love story, Disney fantasy, pseudomystical SF in the Spielberg mode) and mix them together ultimately leads to giddy incoherence.
I purchased Abyss for a friend who wanted this movie to add to his collection. I have watched this movie at least a dozen times. The story line is great and the special affects are amazing. Love this movie!
I love this movie and the characters and actors in this movie are one of my favorites. I remember I used to watch this movie with my brothers when I was a kid and its good memories for me. Get it I enjoy it.
No one has any goals other than to be the most annoying person in the room and there's plenty of competition in that department. It's a waste of a good setup as the situation and location are well drawn.
