This is a true story, but adapted tastefully and with grace. I've read the book, so wasn't too sure what to expect with the film as I felt it would be a difficult screen adaptation. While it's beautifully shot and captures the idea of freedom from perceived societal shackles, I did find it too long. To put it bluntly, the book tells Christopher's story better.
When I saw this for the first time as a kid, maybe 12 years old, I decided then and there that I was going to be a lifelong Arnold fan. This film is too cool for words.
Robert Patrick does steal the show in this sequel though - he pays ruthless killer way too well.
Groundbreaking special effects that still look incredible today. This film was a trailblazer and no doubt. Bow to the brilliant :)
This is what dialogue writing should be all about. A brilliant, witty and clever script that was just fabulous to see delivered.
This is one movie that aspiring script writers should put on their "must watch" list for educational purposes, but everyone else should get the chance to see it just because it's a bloody great movie.
