I have eventually decided that Stephen Lang is actually acting well here, because his character is basically a robot, denied the Lacanian mirror stage. Either way, Patrick McGoohan has the coolest speaking voice ever, and Michael Ironside - who looks slightly like Jack Nicholson - gives one of the most intriguingly badass villains ever. And, of course, he can make Your Head A Splode
. Not Cronenberg's very best, as its a lot less layered than, say, Videodrome
or The Fly
, but damn enjoyable nonetheless.
