(ru) wrote: Certifiably so-bad-it's-good cheesy AND campy mid-80s sci-fi thriller. There is a chase scene involving police cruisers vs. motor scooters. That should be enough info to determine whether you're gonna sit down to watch this crap or not.

(fr) wrote: What a delightfully creepy movie! After watching the first episode of the HBO series, I felt duty-bound to see the original, especially after friends urged me too. The movie does a very creditable job of depicting a technology-driven artificial landscape, and there's a growing sense of menace throughout the film, particularly when the lead technician discusses the growing volume of inexplicable errors, in very detailed Crichton-esque language. I'm not used to seeing Richard Benjamin act dramatically, and James Brolin has a terrific sense of whimsy here. He is also a dead ringer for Christian Bale. Very fun.

(us) wrote: A B-Movie gem, if you enjoy old cheap films then this is for you. It's nice to see a young Denis Hopper and John Saxon among the cast. A classic idea of the future as thought of in the 60's with bad effects. This film has all the markings of old school sci fi brilliance.

(nl) wrote: Great. Another movie to encourage drug use. Only potheads would find this funny. Me? Not so much.
(es) wrote: Pretty funny: Yul Brynner is supposed to be Tony Curtis' father. At least the ending was unexpected. The world is not made out to be so simple as most movies of its era tended to be. A must see!
