Quoted from doublestack:
It's just a mediocre movie that aged like cheese on a radiator.
The main draw were the technical achievements Cameron spearheaded at the time.
Yeah, it was one of those movies that wowed you at the cinema and then you completely forgot about it afterwards. The only thing that will save it as another pinball machine will be if Keith Elwin is designing it. Gameplay trumps a mediocre theme.
