Contrast that to Gene Hackman's cartoonish portrayal of Lex and you've got a really bad movie. The sequels were exponentially worse and
Returns was crap as well.
Finally, it looks like Warner's got it right. I guess we'll see...
Damn, that's harsh. I agree that the first one is now dated, but it was awesome for its time.
And I enjoyed the Donner cut of II.
The other two are complete shit, however.
