Synopsis


Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone
In this weakly scripted, dull sci-fi adventure, three women have been shipwrecked somewhere in the galaxy on planet Terra Eleven and now Wolff (Peter Strauss), the pilot of a salvage ship, his friend Washington (Ernie Hudson), and the orphaned Niki (Molly Ringwald) are out to rescue them. Along the way, the trio face several life-threatening situations, and as they escape each danger intact, their final encounter with the evil Overdog McNabb (Michael Ironside) draws ever closer. With a wobbly storyline, one-note theme (people versus machines), and unintentionally funny dialogue, Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone has a few things going for it: quick-paced action scenes, unusual sets, a 3-D format, a good musical score, and creative sound effects. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    Spacehunter Adventures in the Zorbidden Zone has held up very well on the years since its theatrical release, and the care that went into the remastering of this this Blu-ray shows. Colors, sounds and resolution are all as good as I'm remembering. Only one thing missing. 3D! This movie was shot natively in 3D, and released during the resurgence of 3D movies in the 80's. Out was a technological Marvel at its time due to the size and complexity of the equipment involved in the 3D production. Up until this time, most 3D was shot in open spaces with very little camera movement. It is sad that the original 3D versionmovie has not been preserved and released, and I hope that someday out will be.

    Another classic for my growing collection. Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone. I love the old Sci-fi movies. The movie is dated but still enjoyable. It has Peter Strauss, Molly Ringwald, Michael Ironside, and Ernie Hudson. I also liked how the restored the movie for blu-ray. It is a movie the whole family can enjoy together where there are not too many movies out there for the younger viewers. I would highly recommend this to my friends. I am glad the Best Buy website has some of the classic movies on blu-ray. Check out what the website has and build your collection to enjoy with your family. You will be surprised to find out what Best Buy has and some new titles to spark your interest.
