Re: Capricorn One (Spoilers)

I hate the fact that it's spawned the latest batch of moon conspiracy theorists, but on its own its a taught and effective thriller. Peter Hyams is an underrated director who is saddled with schlock more often than he should be working in that form.

Re: Capricorn One (Spoilers)

I remember being stunningly disappointed in the film. It started out with an interesting conspiracy theory plot, and halfway thru turned into nothing but yet another average chase film.

Great Goldsmith score, though.

Re: Capricorn One (Spoilers)

I remember seeing it with my Dad. He wasn't happy with it and was telling all the reasons why faking it wouldn't have been possible. He worked for JPL for over 20yrs.

OJ Simpson was in it. That man couldn't act his way out of a paper bag--which made him perfect for "The Naked Gun."
