Butch M (au) wrote: How can a movie be so lightly quirky yet so moving and thought provoking? Science fiction gold. Among my favourite movies.

Lachlan C (au) wrote: A well made documentary which shows how the circumstances around a soldiers death were fabricated with the real events covered up so that public opinion would be favorable towards continuing the war in the Middle East. Feel very sorry for a family which clearly can't move on...

Daniel M (it) wrote: The first 10 minutes might be the most... important battle scene I've seen, since it quite effectively captures what WWII was really about (untrained, sometimes unarmed Russian soldiers tossed against a wall of German fire until pure numbers overwhelmed the Germans) in an English-language, big-budget movie. With that said, all downhill after that.

Tem o Kurt Russel de fato e lacinho o filme todo, e tem uma das mortes mais inesperadas do cinema de acao: deve ser o unico filme em que o Steven Seagal, no lado dos bons, morre. Opa, e o John Leguizamo pode fazer os filmes que quiser, que para mim vai ser sempre o Luigi do filme do Super Mario!

S M (kr) wrote: Based on a novel by Jack Davies, the movie follows the adventures of Rufus Excalibur ffolkes (portrayed by Roger Moore), a frogman turned counter-terrorism consultant for private industry such as insurance companies and the government of the United Kingdom. We see ffolkes' personality shine through early on; he is bright, worldly, brave, asexual and ailurophilic but also misogynistic, alcoholic and cocky. This character is fascinating and unlike any character seen in other films. Shortly after ffolkes was hired to plan for possible attacks on oil rigs, a gang of terrorists actually hijack an oil rig and its control vessels in the North Sea. The leader of these outlaws, Louis Kramer (Anthony Perkins), is attempting to extort officials for a fortune. ffolkes, along with Admiral Brindsen (James Mason), the Lord Privy Tipping (Jeremy Clyde) and the UK Prime Minister (Faith Brook), plans a re-seizing blitz on these rigged vessels before the ransom deadline is reached.This is an unpretentious, straight-forward action movie that ditches many of the standard expectations and tropes of thrillers and actions flicks, and it is all the better because of it! Roger Moore surprising plays this bearded, eccentric lead very well and with subtle, smirking humor. His misogyny may turn viewers off but a protagonist does not have to be admirable to be intriguing (and he is shown up on this subject at the end). Perkins (aka Norman Bates of Psycho (1960) fame) makes a great villain; Kramer is a hot-tempered devil who keeps the conflicts of the film intriguing. David Hedison, Michael Parks and Lea Brodie do very well in smaller supporting roles. Faith Brook does a good Margaret Thatcher impersonation, although the prime minister in the film is never named specifically.The film offers some great underwater sequences and the tension from the stealth sequences rarely-used in most action films is thrilling. The dialogue is often darkly or dryly humorous and snappy and most of the film is well-paced. Michael Lewis' score is exciting and even provides a sort of ffolkes themes for the action scenes.

Rodney M (ag) wrote: Aside from Pacino, the acting is terrible. The cinematography is a joke. The effects are about as good as a high school play, and the movie drags through the middle. Not sure who was in charge of editing, but they should not have gotten a check. Too many scenes don't even flow into the next. As a kid I loved this movie. As an adult who has scene what great movies look like; this just isn't a good movie at all. Easily the most overrated movie of the last 40 years. Hasn't ages well either with the terrible soundtrack.
