I enjoyed the movie. It has great food for thought, this is drama not an action movie. The scenery is simply gorgeous and Harrison Ford does an outstanding job as an intense but brilliant autocratic inventor. I found it interesting to see Helen Mirren in her younger years, she is more beautiful now in my eyes. Does absolute power corrupt absolutely?

If you cant decide whether or not to use a credit to see this DVD, this one is well worth your time and credit. The story is credible, and you may waffle between believing in his dream and wanting that for yourself and seeing how dillusional Harrison Ford's character is. I found it interesting that Jadrien Steel and the twin Gordon girls dont star in any other movies before or after this one. Of course you know River Phoenix is deceased.
