I never saw JP when it first came out but I still remember the hype. So some 25 years later (how is it that long) i decided to give it a watch. Now for years we have been spoilded with CGI and SFX and so perhaps i was asking a bit much of a 25year old film but it just didn't bowl me over. It, is probably more effective on the big screen and dolby surround sound etc. i just was waiting for a bit more; to come and give me a knock-out blow that never came. Good acting by all the cast espcially Sir Richard.
