ARENA (Released on video in the UK 1989)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì 

Arena survives on a small storyline and a suitable and/or predictable conclusion. This film has a strong cult classic movie feeling.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The movie does have a fresh concept and some creative alien fighters for the fighting arena but it maintains its suitable to okay watch throughout with a predictability in many scenes. It has, at times, a feeling of a Star Wars movie with its reliance on the mixing of alien worlds and their unique costuming.
