This masterpiece of modern science fiction stands in a class all by itself. the story has a little something for everyone, it has humour,action and excitement, and most of all great special effects. This geat godzilla style 80's monster movie really hits the mark. Gigantic winged reptile stalking new york city reflects horror flicks of the 50's.Truly a cult classic. one of my favorites, I recommend this one to any fan of the genre. However, the squeamish should avoid at all cost.
