F/X (1986)

DirectorRobert Mandel

StarringBryan Brown, Brian Dennehy, Diane Venora, Cliff DeYoung, Mason Adams, Jerry Orbach, Tom Noonan, Angela Bassett


What’s it all about? – Film special effects guy gets hired to fake a mobsters death and is then framed for his murder. Obviously he uses his FX know-how to help clear his name.

Notes & Scribbles

  • He really let himself get sucked into that situation, didn’t he?
  • Clever little insight into some of the special effects that were used in films.
  • Want to see the sequel now, but I wonder what a remake would look like with the advances in make-up and special effects these days.
  • Good moustache by Brian Dennehy
  • Watched this on YouTube thanks to the free wi-fi in Madrid airport.
