Customer Review

on 21 July 2013
So worst things first: our lead actor apparently has been picked due to a belief that he can play a good Han Solo - our space rebel anti-hero who's only in it for the money. He can't. When the film starts it feels like you're watching a poor man's Star Wars (even more so than Battlestar Galactica did), and then...

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.
