A card-carrying cult movie even before it opened, screenwriter Earl Mac Rauch’s sci-fi/comic-book mash-up was giddily unbound by production designer J. Michael Riva (grandson of Marlene Dietrich) for producer/director Richter. Peter Weller stars as the titular adventurer, countering an alien-invasion threat stoked by possessed-by-a-madman John Lithgow with an eccentric heroic crew including Goldblum as brain surgeon New Jersey—in full cowboy regalia.
