John Nada (Piper) is a struggling labourer who drifts into town and luckily scores a job at a construction site. Discovering a box of sunglasses, Nada swipes a pair and is shocked to find what he can see through them; billboards demand citizens 'Eat' or 'Sleep', TV shows spout orders at him and some people look rather less than human

Its got Rowdy Roddy Piper in it people.... if you've not seen it then do yourself a favour and get this special edition!

Read some of the Play reviews if you want more convincing.

i think (and i might be wrong) that its got the longest fight in any feature film

does he win then nearly lose then get his strength back from shaking ropes, take any punch, look like a mental and win again? ultimate warrior does.

I've ordered (what seems to be) the same one from Amazon at the same price.

IMO, Amazon > Play.com.

Nice find though, I'll add heat.

I saw that, i thought the Amazon one was just the normal edition... although maybe its just not been advertised correctly.

Haha, yeah - absolutely ridiculous scene.

Great movie, thanks for sharing!

I think the price makes this deal look worse than it is, but just shy of 4 quid is still great for solid gold.

The only thing that would make this film better would be added Chuck Norris.

Oh, gawd. Is the Chuck Norris thing still around? I remember hearing it about five years or so ago. I remember that you can Google 'where is chuck norris', and click I'm feeling Lucky for a joke page.

Great film, ordered thanks!

Excellent. I tried this and got the line "you don't find chuck Norris he finds you." Then I tried it again and got a page about Chuck Norris jokes. Good stuff.

Solid John Carpenter Gold.

And it's with Keith David who is also a complete legend. It's what causes the fight that makes it brilliant. Don't spoil it for the uninitiated.

Great film.

Excellent! Bought & heat for you Mr. Splodge!
