See, sheer idiocy like this is the reason not to trust this review. The Reeve version made a generation believe a man could fly. The wire take-offs and landings were breathtaking throughout all 4.
Agreed. I freakin love
Reeve's graceful takeoffs and landings, and there were a bunch of great ones in SIII (flying across the street to the car, taking off from road next to Lana, taking off from next to the fireman...)
People can joke all they want, but those "outdated" flying effects still look more real and believable to me than anything I've seen since.
