|It's got a ninja on roller skates, what more could you want? One of those so-bad-it's-good films that gets even better thanks to the modern "re-direction". A masterpiece. I was grinning through most of it.
|Stretches a heart-warming news bite into a rather thin film. So, you get a lot of filler, mainly through clunky flashbacks and patriotic sentimentalism. Thankfully, Caine and Jackson are legendary enough to salvage the experience. Their performances carry this movie farther than it deserves.
|Pretty bad, but it has its amusing moments. Also lots of cats.
|Blue Thunder boasts kinetic, pre-CGI helicopter stunts with impressive low-altitude flights over down-town Los Angeles. These sequences alone make the film worth a watch. Thematically, though, it offers a muddled critique of overreaching surveillance, with a scene showing two police officers staring down a woman's dress from 150m in the air. It's flawed, but the exciting action and strong cast elevate it above similar films in the genre
|With a title like that, you expect a good dose of psychotronic cheese. And that's exactly what you get, and then some. Every single scene is campy and stupid, but you just can't turn your eyes away. It's gloriously, unapologetically ridiculous.
|I may have watched too many films, but I saw the main twist coming from a mile away. Still, it's a fun watch, if a little meandering.
|Random barely amusing situations that all hang together by a very weak thread. Not much to find here except an anecdotal look at sixties France.
|While the film offers interesting political and class perspectives, its questionable portrayal of rape, even by the standards of its time, detracts from any potential it might have had.
|A grim mix of desperation and black comedy. Dewaere's manic self-destructive portrayal of Poupart against the desolate patchwork of a half-finished Paris suburb is superb. Perfectly dark.
|Cheap and dull sequel, with a made-for-TV feeling. This one trades grit for bargain-bin plots and flat performances. Adequate, but ultimately forgettable
