The first time I saw it I thought it stunk. I then watched it again and I like it. I watch now when I get a chance to do so. I would say that this ranks up there in my list with Yellowbeard the Pirate as my favorites. The ending left an opening for a part two. Does anyone know if there is/was a part two?
No, probably because it did not earn enough, about $9 million in the U.S. and $1 million in the U.K., for the suits to decide to make another one. It did, though, spawn a limited comic book series, a limited book series, and a video game for home computers. The fact that Fox, the distributor, did a hack job on it, before they released it, probably did not help it at the box office.
As I am always looking for "last films" and "1st films" for actors, this was actor Kenneth Nelson's last film.
