Jay D 's Watching’s review published on Letterboxd:
This goes straight into the 90s cinematic comfort food pile, along with the Fifth Element and a number of other movies. It's interesting though, given the rumors that George P. Cosmatos was unable to direct large sections of the film and it was actually ghost-directed by Russell (Cosmatos himself brought in to replace screenwriter Kevin Jaffe, who was unable to handle the production once it started) then Russell has been low-key holding out on us when it comes to his directing talents. It'd be neat to see a film with his name on it as director is what I'm trying to say. You know, for purpose of comparison.
