Summary: Dreadful effects for a major movie spoil what would have been a classic, the obvious model shots and a city that looks like a shopping mall, the ice caves, all dreadful, even for the mid seventies! the TV series that followed was just as shoddy, but that had an excuse. the mid to late 70`s saw many big screen rip-off sci-fi movies given more hype than they are worth! shame as the idea was really great.
Summary: I loved this film and the sense of watching a ground breaking film. Michael York and Jenny Agutter are superb in their roles and the storyline is rather chilling! The film is highly recommended!

Summary: Science fiction is not everyone’s cup of tea, but you should be watching this one. I hunted down a DVD from USA as you can't get it hear in the UK. It is a classic film, way ahead of it's time in direction. The book continues beyond where the film ends, but having a 2-hour film in 1976 was an achievement in its self.
Conclusion: Although the disc cover states the picture is 1:85 to 1 this is excactly them same format as the Region 1 DVD, even though that describes it as "Wide Screen". The version of the film on both Region 1 and Region 2 is identical so buying the Region 2 DVD means you do not loose any of the picture... so enjoy.
