  • A good movie from the 90's

    By iphonjeff
    I owned this on VHS during the 90's and watched it several times back then and just recently watched it again on my iPad. It really brought back memories. Is it kind of corny? Yes but overall it's a very good movie if you take the time to understand it. It has some great quotes in it also.
  • An Okay Remake of A Classic Movie!

    By Slack-Babbath
    An Okay Remake of A Classic Movie! Not as bad as people have made it out to be. This movie is a remake of "The Island of Lost Souls"
  • Hard to Focus On

    By Lattana
    This movie was a toss up between being so boring that you cannot stay awake and so confusing that you spent the whole time trying to figure out what and why. The end was a mess and horribly depressing and the whole mess left me feeling so empty. One of the worse movies I have ever seen, a complete disaster. Do not see, I cannot think of a single person this movie would appeal to, even those of us who like to make fun of stupid movies.
  • Not Good- Which is a shame...

    By Kitty Bond
    I really like Val Kilmer (and he does a delightful impersonation in this film for about 10 seconds) but the movie is awful. I know it had production problems and it really shows. Brando almost seems to be purposefully tanking his part.
