    Your Opinions and Comments

    5 / 10
    I bought this film because it was on offer and I remember enjoying it on video when it first came out… however I think buying it may have been a bit of a mistake. Maybe next time I'll just wait for it to come on TV again!

    This is an OK film, with an OK video transfer, with OK audio, but to make up for this Warner Bros have given us a huge array of extras - 3 commentary tracks, an insightful making of, deleted scenes and a trailer. OK, now take away the 3 commentaries, making of and the deleted scenes - and you've got you extra (singular).

    Overall, it's fine - but not one to buy unless you're a big fan of the film. Currently, £7.49 at if you're interested.
