A very good concept for a movie. I think I would have been more impressed had I seen this in the 70's when it was made. The story is the draw here more so than any acting or effects. The ending is a bit long in the tooth, as is the entire movie. Still, a very nice piece of sci-fi. And O.J. Simpson before he was crazy.
