Guilty pleasure if there ever was one.
Watching it for the first time with 15 years' distance, it feels like it was made 15 years earlier than it was. And if it had been made in 1986, I bet a lot of people would love it.
Not quite as bad as its reputation, but underwhelming considering John Carpenter's excellent body of work. The story just wasn't good enough this time around and the actors are an odd mix who mostly look awkward (like Ice Cube) and/or miscast (like Pam Grier). The only thing I really liked was the early model shots of Mars for some refreshingly un-CGI-ish visual effects and a few spectacular deaths in some refreshingly un-PG-13-ish action sequences.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
