I recently saw this movie for the first time, and I'll have to say that it was better than I expected! Although I think there are some plot holes and a little lack of explanation, the movie is still very entertaining, thought-provoking, and it holds up pretty well against today's movies of the same type. Great directing by Chrichton and good acting by Albert Finney. I especially liked how Finney's character tried to act intelligent and rational in every tense situation he got into, unlike a lot of heroes in modern films. I also really liked the concept of the weapon that they used which caused people to blank out without knowing it! Some really cool scenes using that, plus, an very entertaining (and slightly humorous) ending sequence! Chrichton scores again! For anyone who hasn't seen this movie yet, pay no attention to Leanard Maltin's review, I disagree with it completely! Just because this movie is old, don't pass it up.
