Truly excellent movie. One of the most fun I've ever seen. Keep 2 things in mind while watching it: "These sets are soooo good" and "C'mon, Isaac Hayes is the bad guy and drives a car with lamps welded onto the hood, how can it possibly be bad?"
Underwhelming dialogue, but Carpenter's dark style in post-apocalyptic New York shines through well. Interesting set designs and one fantastically memorable car.
