    Your Opinions and Comments

    Almost 8 years after first watching the region 2 version of this movie, I got a chance to sit through the region 1 version.
    No surprises there - it's still a fun movie, although I've completely forgot what the plot was about.
    The video transfer is very good. There aren't any compression signs and the special effects are very good, although the late 90's CG shows its age quite well.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is great. The surrounds and the sub get a massive workout and the dialog is always clear.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The Extras include 2 commentaries, 6 deleted scenes, a featurette about the special effects, a music video and interviews and information with the original cast of the TV-series.
    Bottom line - a cool sci-fi adventure with Joey in a hillarious sci-fi cast. :)
