But hold on a sec. I don't want to come off as completely hating this movie. First of all, it's tough to hate anything that involves the great Tommy Lee Jones. Dude's got the charisma to spare and can make even the lamest of drivel watchable. Whether delivering smart-ass lines or punches to some jerk's face, the man's a class act all the way. Plus, you've also got Ms. Sarah Connor, the lovely Linda Hamilton on hand who looks pretty even with this ridiculous afro mullet hairdo! Clearly BLACK MOON was packin' some nice talent in its two leads.
Another facet that really helped amp up he fun was Lalo Schifrin's synthesizer-heavy score, which really brought about a nostalgic 80's feel. I know that since this flick was actually made in the 80's, it doesn't necessarily count as nostalgia, but from someone who watches it in 2010, I dare you not to get that ol' 1980's feeling after hearing this score. In fact, that really is the best reason I can give for checking out BLACK MOON RISING. You really feel like you've been transported back in time to a simpler era of film.
Sadly, I still can't excuse the complete lack of logic and quality that was evident in a great deal of the proceedings. This flick contains what has got to be the most random and rushed love scene ever committed to celluloid. I mean, I get that he's Tommy Lee Jones in his prime, but you will absolutely marvel at how fast Linda Hamilton jumps into bed with him. Just ridiculous! And yes, you do see a little bit of "Connor booby".
