Your Opinions and Comments
There is a good cast who are basically having fun, the effects are good and the ending is slightly silly.
There are a lot of in jokes which you may not get if you are new to sci-fi.
The sound is good but I haven`t watched it all through since buying my Dolby Digital kit, picture is good, the reds are well handled.
The story isn`t bad but I think that you would only watch it every 6 months to a year - it is definately a film you need to be in the mood for to repeat watch after first watching, I watched it twice through in the first week, the film isn`t too long, unlike some.
I suggest drinking while watching, and it is a good demo disc. Buy it for the mickey take story line, good effects, overall quality, and to watch big names ham it up. Don`t buy it if you only like serious films, or if you dislike Tom Jones.
The Disc has a great 5.1 soundtrack with a detailed 2.35:1 picture.
The extras are very dissapointing, seeing as the film has alot of hollywood stars, there must of been some behind the scenes footage captured. What you get isn`t to bad, the music only audio track is a good addition and the production notes are interesting.
