    Definitely one of the more interesting war movies out there, and still a lot of fun to watch. The crazy Kodak Ektachrome look dates it a little bit, but in a good way. And the movie still feels as immediate and energetic as ever, even a half-dozen U.S. wars later.

    Christopher Reeve, goddammit.

    Also, I actually appreciate the preposterous ending more as I get older. (Maybe as much as I enjoyed it when I was a kid.) It's not sci-fi, it's myth.
