It borrows heavily from contemporary films including Flash Gordon and Star Trek as well as George Lucas' franchise but its real draw at the time was its cutting edge special effects that represented the digital landscape. As you can imagine, they have dated a lot since its release but beauty is of course in the eye of the beholder, so to some they will be old and cheesy but to others the height …
