Too many flashbacks and fade wipes, as simple editing tricks would've done the job. The entire movie is totally ridiculous, yet a guilty pleasure of mine. There's a lot of thrilling sequences that kept me interested and also some memorable deaths scenes which stuck with me for years. But still, I can't believe John Carpenter made this, until I saw 'The Ward'.

All of John Carpenter's work had its strengths and weaknesses. This, however involves hopeless dialogue, dismal characterisation, laughable plotting and zero suspense. It's a typical Carpenter film, but with all the things that made them good removed. Dire.

In the same vein of Carpenters other B-grade action movies, except this one is not fun.
