Pretty good movie! The special effects were really bad though!

This is most definitely a Top 10 movie. It deals with many issues in a unique, heart felt, brilliant manner.

Enemies that really know nothing about each other or each other’s cultures are forced, for survival, to work together. There is no one else. Through hardship and survival they begin to learn about each other.

This is a Sci-Fi classic. But at the root, it points out that just because someone is not like you, that does not mean that they and their values or culture do not have validity. You may find, if you really knew someone you thought of as an enemy, that they just might be your best friend.

I have a philosophy that all people have value to someone. Just because you don’t know or understand, doesn’t mean the value is not there. It only hurts you to have negative feelings about others. Realize all people have value; and you might just see a better world.

One of the best films ever made, in the 80' I think, but well worth seeing.

The film is quite faithful to the novel on which it is based, and, although it is a science fiction story, it has a universal message.that I believe many people could benefit from. This movie evokes what it means to be 'human', no matter where you come from. And for you action minded folk: yes there's some of that too. I would highly recommend this to any fan of science fiction.
