Not bad, but quite long, and I’m not sure why.

Scott succeeds in creating a Bladerunner-ish set in and around Tokyo and fills it with ceiling fans.

Douglas is pretty cool. I’ve always wondered why Garcia never had a real career. He’s got the look. Does he really lack dramatic acting ability?

Zimmer would later use some of the same score elements in True Romance.
