a great cult classic here, definite must watch, very fun movie. definitely NOT a horror film, more of a dystopian action movie, but well worth the watch

Wasn't entirely too sure what to expect this movie to be going in, would absolutely say it was worth the watch and a great film overall!

They don't make films with this kind of sarcastic wit anymore. I feel like it might get lost on the youth. This is what made the 80's great. Not Mom jeans.
