      Purely dark and powerful. I was first shown this at school during the first Gulf war when I was about 14. For the first 45 mins, myself and my mates ripped it to pieces for its early 80's look and dialogue. Then they dropped the bomb and the laughing stopped. Some girls had to leave the room. I didnt sleep well after seeing it as I thought Saddam might bomb us. Still watchable after all these years though. Still grim till the end. 4 Stars.
