Customer Review

on 8 May 2004
I bought this cheap, thought it would be rubbish.
Made by John Boorman, the guy who made Deliverance (yahoo), Exorcist II (arrgh) and wrote the book Adventures of Suburban Boy.
Zardoz is wonderfully imaginative film. The start is truly great and you don't have to wait very long at all for it to get interesting.
Sean Connery plays Zed a hero who attempts to make sense of his future society, a society of immortals and fascist oppression. The film though a bit arty, violent and rude is nevertheless brimming with great ideas. At times the film feels like an episode of the peerless TV show the Prisoner. Though there are also moments it feels like a pretentious Star Trek episode. You can live a happy and forfilled life without having to watch Zardoz.
It is a great film with some embarrassing sci-fi pretensions and moments of incomprehensible weirdness. If you are bored through watching too many very clichéd films then try this. If you want some slick and polished entertainment you should look elsewhere.
