Not cheap but rarities never are. I will still enjoy it so long asd I have a VHS tape player to play it on.

Combining their talents, they try to rescue the women....
Another one of those films that people must have fond memories of, when they saw it all those years ago.
But seeing that I saw this for the first today and at the age of 34, it's a big disappointment for the first hour. It reminded me of that awful film from 1985 called 'Land of Doom' or something.
The first two acts are just people walking thought the desert, pointing things at the screen because of the 3D, searching for three women.
It's a chore to sit through, Molly Ringwald turns up, but she whines, and then Ernie Hudson turns up, but he isn't Winston, and you start to despair.
But then all of a sudden the final act really ups the ante, and we get a cross between The Crystal Maze and Duran Duran's Wild Boys video.
It almost makes the rest of the film worth watching.
But then you cannot see this part on it's own, as it would be really difficult to comprehend what was going on.
Another case of the title being better than the film...
10 minutes or so in, Molly Ringwald appears. And from there on she just gives it her all, putting in this way-above par performance that elevates the film as a whole. Michael Ironside is consistently great, and I've loved him in The A-Team, Total Recall, Community (heh) - he's never gonna be the weakest link, and sure enough he's a reliably imposing villain here.
But it's Molly who really shines. A year later, in Sixteen Candles, the world would see that shine and she would come one step closer to becoming a household name. A year after that, it was The Breakfast Club. And the rest, as they say, is history.
