Lifeforce is not Alien. It is not Total Recall. It is not even that good a movie. Switching between sci fi action and British who dunnit makes for a very uneven feel. Yet it is still a very entertaining film and the fx still look pretty good by today`s standards. Nice tits too!

That`s the main memory i`ve got of this piece of celluloid mindlessness. It`s got everything, Blood (the helecopter scene), Violence, Tits (Mathilda May), and Frank Finlay.

Who cares about the plot, where a space ship is detected inside Halley`s Comet. This is Cannon films at their Best. (i said that with a straight face too).

The film looks like it was shot by a classmate of Stevie Wonder. Sound, well sound is appaliing, But hey! I really love this movie, I bought it when it came out in `86 on video.

This is a true, 10 pints and a curry, bugger there`s nothing on tv, what haven`t i seen for ages that won`t test my braincells too much kind of a film.
