one of the ultimate geek movies. had only seen this in bits and pieces up to now which was an embarrassment i had to rectify. great flick with better efx than i remembered. way ahead of its time and influential for all sorts of films, the most obvious being the matrix which plays with the same idea, but takes it even further and is much more philosophical (and has much better action).
in spite of being 28 years old with outdated efx this one really stands the test of time. if you haven’t seen it already then you definitely should.
