This movie takes a really long time to get going. The final half hour, however, makes for a really exciting climax, with a great combination of dark, creepy atmosphere like Alien and high-power action sequences like Aliens. Does it make up for the less intriguing first hour and a half? I'd say yes, but it's a lot to sit through for the ending, particularly when most of the characters are not noteworthy and the ones that are, are hardly on screen. 3 stars.
Flickchart: #912 out of 1993, below Thank You For Smoking and above Nacho Libre.
