Established Hollywood director who is responsible for a fair amount of modern classics, but has made just as much throw-away junk. Scott can get a little too caught up in his own work, leading to overly long films, but overall an oeuvre worth exploring.

Nice piece of war insanity. The first half hour is a little slow, but once the action starts it just doesn't let down anymore. The film feels claustrophobic and tense, doing well in translating the threatening situation on screen. One of Ridley Scott's best and one of the best war films overall.

A surprisingly charming film by Ridley Scott. Extremely kitsch at times, but Scott's direction is so confdient it doesn't even matter. The art direction is great, the effects don't look too cheap and the fantasy foundation feels unique enough. Would've loved this as a child, but it's still holds up today.
