Blu-ray Review - Inside Moves


Director Richard Donner was in an incredible professional position in 1979. In 1976, he helmed "The Omen," giving Donner his first major box office and creative success. In 1978, he guided "Superman" to pop culture dominance, emerging with another monster moneymaker and one of the few masterpieces found in comic book cinema. Donner was riding high, electing to cash in some of his power to make 1980's "Inside Moves," which is as far away from Satan and Krypton as possible.
