An average movie

I already saw this movie but since it was more than 20 years ago, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, to be honest, even though I thought it was pretty neat when I was a kid, in fact, it is not really a good movie, I’m afraid. I mean, there were some nice bits, here and there, Jack Nicholson had a lot of fun with this character and they couldn’t have picked up a more gorgeous trio of actresses but, unfortunately, the whole thing was just too silly and convoluted. For example, Daryl van Horn first tries to seduce Alexandra who rejects his proposal , which made made sense, but then, he gives her another speech and she falls for him which was completely unconvincing. In the following scene, Daryl seduces Jane and it really worked fine this time. Finally, it seemed that they ran ouf of time so they just skipped  a similar scene involving Sukie. As a result, the motivation of these 3 women was never properly developed and they focused too much on the one-man-show delivered by Jack Nicholson. Furthermore, there were also some major plot-holes like, for example, why had Veronica Cartwright’s character such a fixation towards these women and Daryl? Towards the end, they also used some magic book to stop Daryl but how did they know that he had this book, how did they know where to find it and how to use it? In fact, this movie was actually the first one made by George Miller in the USA and it was apparently a really difficult shoot with many conflicts with the studio and he really struggled to get more or less the movie he wanted to shoot. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, I still think it is a decent watch, above all thanks to a strong Jack Nicholson and it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
