A truly fantastical trippy 80's horror movie where the skies are no longer safe in New York. The plot is full of holes but still contains some strength to keep the audience entertained, though it has to be said that it was Moriaty's performance that probably carried it.
With a serious amount of homage to the Rocky series, I would have to say that I was seriously surprised to find similar emotions watching a plot which hadn't originally sold me. Stong soundtrack, great cast, smooth CGI; a great Sunday afternoon film for sitting back and enjoying.
Seriously a strange plot with a stranger cast but somehow someone saw through this combination and brought it to the silverscreen and thank-you whoever you were.
1986 was year where so many classics appeared in my childhood and BTiLC is up there with the best. I think what gives it true creedance though is that is one of few that I would love to see a sequel too, c'mon Carpenter and Russell!
Quick to setup the scene, isolating the cast from the world and setting the creature free. Though a step away from the original in regards to tension, there is still fun to be had by the audience, with several nods to not only only Kurt Russell but also some of the other older characters. With any prequel/sequel/reboot the question has to be does it stand up, the answer for me is no but then the original has a special place that can not be competed with. So a great watch but don't compare it.
