Star: Albert Finney, James Coburn, Susan Dey
Cert / Year: 15 - PG / 1981
Format: Video

A plastic surgeon (Albert Finney) investigates the deaths of a number of his young model patients, but uncovers a frightening secret project of a major coporation. This is an inovative but dated techno thriller. The story contains enough gadets and plot twists to keep you interested, and if not there is a bevy of glamorous models to look at. James Coburn and Albert Finney provide strong performances, but Susan Dey is wasted as the girl who needs rescuing all of the time. Made in 1981 much of the technology, with the exception of the time dillation effects, (especially the usage of computers) has dated majorly in a bad way. However overall it is an interesting and entertaining film.

Rating: 2 out of 5
