Is this Stuart Gordon's best film ever? It has got Jeffrey Combs with long hair, Kurtwood Smith as a cyborg prison warden, and Vernon Wells in a bit part. Even though it has Christopher Lambert in it, its got two exploding bodies (with blue blood) and an explosive ending for Wells' character. Lambert shoots a combi-bolter. Oh, there's also a killer truck, but without the Green Goblin grill ornament. More fun than any Stallone prison movie for sure.
Okay, it's probably Gordon's #3 film for me.
A thoroughly 1987 movie, 'The Hidden' stars Kyle MacLachlan and his perfect coif chasing the murderer of his partner and family. The story has elements of Carpenter's 'The Thing', MacLachlan's uneasy portrayal, and the worst part of the synth score from the 'The Terminator'.
If you're a fan of John Carpenter's sci-fi movies, 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers', or a stripper shooting a pump shotgun at cops, this movie might be for you.
This isn’t the movie Mega City 1 deserves, but it is the movie Mega City 1 needs. A violent, dark dystopia wherein Judges enforce the law with no remorse. In other words, fairly faithful to the comics I’ve read.
The best comparison in terms of plot, tone, and production design is the first half of The Raid before all of the hand to hand combat began.
A good double feature with the 1987 Robocop, this is too dark and violent for many.
