  1.  Van Damme at his best

    Posted: 

    In the 80's and 90's i watched a lot of Martial Arts films and decided to take a trip down memory lane.

    I'm glad i did. Not the greatest acting yet the action make up for this.

    Extra bonus is seeing Van Damme in a wig in the 200 or so flash back scenes.

  2.  Rubbish

    Posted: 

    Like others have said it is rubbish.

    You shake your hand right, then left and forward. That is it.

    Can't say anything more.

  3.  Forgotten because of subject matter.

    Posted: 

    I first watched the film about a year ago as I like watching controversial films from the 70's/80's and had somehow managed to miss this film. The fact Al Pacino starred also made me want to watch it.

    Like the previous reviewer stated it is not for homophobic people. While I am not homophobic I found some of the scenes in the background of the clubs unnecessary and maybe they didn't need to be shown.

    Overall it is a very good film and worth watching.

    As a note the film caused major uproar upon release mostly from the gay community as they thought it showed an untrue image of the gay scene in New York at the time.

    4 Stars.

  4.  Not as good as i remember.

    Posted: 

    I watched this film a few times in the late 80's/earley 90's and finally got round to watching it again after a gap of about 15 years.

    It is a good film but, it doesn't seem as gritty as it did when I first watched it and how I remembered it. Still a good film with Robert Duvall putting in a great performance and Sean Penn playing a very annoying young cop.

    3 Stars is a fair rating.

  5.  Cinema at it's finest.

    Posted: 

    I was a little worried as i'm a blackandwhitefilmophobe but, this fim is marvelous.

    Compared to films like Serpico, Taxi Driver, The Warriors that show New York on the 1970's as a cess pit this shows 70's New York through Woody Allen's eyes and what a place it is.

    5 Stars all the way.

  6.  One of the greatest films ever. 5 Stars.

    Posted: 

    A truly great film deserving of the maximum 5 stars.

    Controversy surrounded this film upon it's release and it's easy to see why upon watching. They just don't make films like this today.

    I can't think of a bad thing to say about any part of the film. Keep an eye out for Scorsese's 2 cameo appearances during the film.

    If you want to see what New York was like in the 1970's grime and all, buy this film.

  7.  Pretty Good

    Posted: 

    In the 1970's and 1980's Charles Bronson was one of the most famous actors in the world.

    He starred in so many films that today have sadly been forgotten.

    This is a fine example of the many Action/Thrillers he appeared in.

    I won't give too much away but even an Axe in the gut won't stop old Charlie. 3 Stars

  8.  3 ½ stars really, doesn€t deserve 4 though.

    Posted: 

    This is a good fun action film but, there is something missing from the usual John Carpenter film, I'm not sure what it is though.

    Worth your £4.99 though.

    If you do enjoy this film check out 3 other Carpenter films that are 5 star.

    Assault on Precinct 13
    The Thing
    Escape from New York.

  9.  Low Budget sick and fun.

    Posted: 

    Frank Henenlotter is a genius.

    His films are basically mad and people should watch them not expecting a serious/big Budget extravaganza.

    In short it is about a monster that feeds on peoples brains. It lives in a host who is tanked up on a mysterious drug that takes them an almighty trip. While off there face the monster strikes.

    If you like this film watch Basket Case his greatest film.

  10.  Nice Retro T Shirt.

    Posted: 

    When i ordered this a month ago it said charcoal it is jet black.

    Overall a nice retro feeling to the shirt and nice thin material.

    Only 3 stars as it's a Gildan T Shirt and from paSt experience they only last a few times in the washing machine.
