    I love this movie with everything in me. Not just for nastgia and the great supporting cast. But because I genuinely love it and find it satisfying. I watch this movie at least twice a year and I get a little excited every time. The excitement of this movie wouldn’t hold up nearly as well without some fantastic acting by the supporting cast that makes the team and a stand out performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman. There are flaws and inconsistencies but when you’re having this much fun, and they are driving trucks through houses, I just don’t care.

    One of the best actions movies of the 90’s. Why? Because of that awesome 80’s feel. Because of Dennis Hoppers villain laugh. Because Keanu’s one liners. Because of Alan Ruck. Because of bonus Richard Schiff. It never lets up and is constantly moving. Plus the director followed this up with Twister. I mean come on.

    I gave my six year old son control of the remote and told him to pick a movie. So we sat through this abomination. I have since put him up for adoption.

    This is how you make a sci-fi movie. Wow. Beautifully shot. The sound design and the visuals are what make this movie. To say my jaw was on the ground during the entire bear scene is a massive understatement. It’s confusing, it’s brilliant, and it’s complicated but above all else, it’s an amazing damn sci-fi film.
