An optics specialist is sent to investigate the unusual readings the military is getting from his equipment.

A solid movie all around. Great action and a good world, but with enough fuzzy science and The A-Team-style jury-rigging to rivet it solidly to TV-movie quality.

A crazy old man appears in a war-torn city to correct the misconceptions of the retelling of his adventures.

It's a great fluff fantasy movie. I didn't see it back in the day, so it has no nostalgia for me. Left with what it is at face value, I can't recommend it except for people who like the old 80s style of kids' practical effects fantasy movies. Think The Dark Crystal - (1982 movie) or The Neverending Story - (1984 movie).

A boy is abused, gets hit on the head, is institutionalized and has a daydream.

Raises the bar for acting with this character. A good movie, but definitely not traditional. Riveting without a particularly obvious thread. It could have been a whole lot better, but it would have needed to delve into the true and far darker roots of the main character; his mother, and you can't do that because she's a woman.

After watching this movie I just realized I didn't see the earlier one. Whoops.

A police officer almost dies in the course of duty, but is converted into a cyborg.

When it came out I was given the impression that it would be bad, especially compared to the original, but it was fair. Not good, but fair.
