Well the thing is, they had some pretty cool bikes in it. The kind of things I would imagine to exist at that time. But the cars looked awful. Bad solar panels on them with wires everywhere.
Just seemed so strange.
And I don't mind that they didn't use CGI, but if you're setting a film in the future, you need it to look like the future. And I appreciate that they wanted it to look like an Armageddon of a recession had hit, but companies are still going to be innovative.
Because cars in 1982 looked so incredibly different to how cars look today?
It's only set 30 years in the future. This isn't the Jetsons.
