| An underrated Science Fiction Jewel!
Although I've known of this film since its release, I've seen it tonight, after 25 years! It was worth the wait - an excelently acted science fiction piece, presented as a police drama. Certainly it marked by its date - the clothes, the cars, the rounded television sets :o) - but this now adds a certain charm that I'm sure the director never intended. Special effects are not the flashy "Sci-fi" type but are all the more impressive for this, adding verisimilitude to a gritty and involving tale. If you enjoy "hard" science fiction, try and see it!
