F/X is a great action thriller directed by Robert Mandel.
Featuring a super cast: Bryan Brown, Brian Dennehy, Cliff De Young, Mason Adams, Diane Venora,
Jerry Orbach, Martha Gehman and Joe Grifasi.

I still remember when we rented the VHS tape back in ´86-87
when we had one of our many movie nights.

I love the clever story and Bill Conti has created a nice score.
I also like the fantastic end credits tune "Just an Illusion" by Imagination.
The ending surely brings a smile to your face.

You can also spot some cool movie posters: Fade to Black, Zombie, Rambo II and Code of Silence.
Recommended!

Next: F/X 2 (1991)

This doesn't get talked about enough. It was a good movie.

i mentioned this movie in another thread somewhere but cant remember where or what context. Either way, atomik and Logan are right in saying this is a great film indeed...very under seen/watched and underated imo. Glad to see someone else thinks so. Cudos to you both.

If atomik and logan have not seen a 90's movie called two hands then this is a must see, particularly you Atomik. Its set in sydney and Heath Ledger is the name of this game - a tremedous film which was relatively low budget.

I would like to write a review of "F/X" for the Rewind.

If only I could obtain a copy. [Big Grin] [Wink]

One of the coolest ending songs/scenes.
