It's been awhile since I've seen it

but while "noir" seems like a stretch, I do sorta know what you mean but having seen the sequel first, the mysterious elements of the plot were pretty much blown for me. And you could draw a comparison (which I'm sure other Babblers have) between the first 2 Terminator films and the first 2 Alien films. I suppose in both cases, the original is the more "mature" but with this type of film that hardly matters (and as I explained in my reply to Matt, that can actually be strike against it). And both originals include more horror and mystery elements while the sequels are shamelessly OTT action fluff. But the sequels are arguably executed more effectively and are more entertaining.
