The movie itself, honestly, kinda sucks. However, as it has finally come to dvd and is easy to find and cheap...I can't help but recommend it to those who like me want to see all the marvel movies out there. THANK GOD marvel improved from these \"back in the day\" low budget ones. The story is so stupid and the costume pathetic, but it's worth a few laughs.
Lacking the moral indignation and militant politics of Lee's former work, this vibrantly colorful father-son melodrama is soft at the center, but it's one of the most accessible films Lee has made and Denzel Washington is terrific.
If you grew up as a teen in the 80s you're going to like this collection especially for the price. My favorite of these are Waxwork, Chopping Mall, Chud 2. Video quality is great. I purchased mine cheaper than here so look around.
Despite its merits, the script fails to escape the silly season that fouls up so many thrillers, that time when the twists merely seem like the narrative equivalents of those violin shrieks on a cheesy score.
A great movie with a suprising twist to it! My favorites are when I cannot figure them out...there are not many I can't! So I loved this one for that very reason! Great cast for a super story! Highly recommended!
