Movie Critics
Entertainment Weekly
"...The large ensemble cast is game....[Some songs shot with] real pizzazz."
Steve Simels (12 Jul 1996, p.67)
USA Today
"...[With] a pulsating mix of flashy cutting and Ry Cooder music....A guilty-pleasure cult movie..."
Mike Clark (5 Jul 1996, p.3D)
Variety
"...A pulsing, throbbing orchestration....The film alternately, and sometimes simultaneously, suggests the rhythm and texture of BLADE RUNNER, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and THE WARRIORS..."
Loyn. (30 May 1984, )
