I'm a massive fan of the TV series, I have the imported boxset of every episode, every film, the annuals, books and comics so was very pleased that the new film was excellent too.
Beautifully shot and kept true to the style and feel of the original. A special mention to the music which is absolutely superb throughout.
Story is typical of the TV series and wasn't too hokey at all. Some really special scenes. Loved it. Brilliant.
Director's Cut extreme padding version. Time hasn't been too kind to this IMO. There's virtually no drive or tension at all in the move, the dialogue is a mess with people talking all over each other most of the time. The main character (Roy) is a total git and the acting is mostly completely wooden. I was willing it to end, the final scenes just went on forever.
Hard to review. It's a good film, a very good film but I don't think it's an all-time classic.
A lot shorter than I remember and for some reason the story felt less involved, especially the whole Natalie sub-plot. I remembered a lot from previous viewings, not sure if that helped. I've also seen the forward version before.
If you've never seen it before make sure you keep your eyes open throughout as there are several subtle clues. The story runs backwards and it will keep you thinking long after viewing as you piece it all together.
