"Only time will tell if we stand the test of time!" -Van Hagar
Modern audiences can handle a tiny squib hit in a PG-rated Action flick from the Seventies, but on the movie's home video cover? Oh no, that's gotta go. Not to mention those scantily clad women. Naughty, naughty!
Armitage doesn't take a heavy-hand to the subject matter, the story or its characters. You can take it as some kind of allegory or just sit back and enjoy it for the sheer thrill of its pulpy melodrama, its humor and the insane spectacle of its action sequences.
