'Back to the Future' well worth another look

'Back to the Future' well worth another look

Director: Robert Zemeckis

Cast: Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson

Cert: PG

Spruced up, re-mastered and returned for our entertainment this now-classic story of time travel – aided by a Belfast-built DeLorean car – still delights, even if more sophisticated special F/X have swamped our screens.

Fox plays Marty McFly who with the help of his slightly dotty inventor friend Lloyd is whizzed back to the past to save his family in a film packed with lovely period detail and fizzing with great moments.

It’s been on TV so often you might think of giving this re-release a miss, but it looks great on the big screen.

Star Rating: 5/5
