A review by John Chard

By John Chard

Vision not fully realised, but still a template of sorts.

It could never have lived up to its hype back in 1989, it was hailed as the film to rival the impact of Jaws & Star Wars as regards historical cinema conventions, it was, we were led to believe, a new age in cinema, or so it seemed. As it was, the film went down a treat for the modern cinema going audience, it raked in cash galore and spawned a raft of very inferior sequels, but ultimately critics of the time were less than impressed.

So it makes for something of an interesting experience viewing it again as it approaches its 30th... read the rest.
