Electric Dreams Reviews

Bizarre 80's obscurity benefits from some great Jeff Lynne tunes.

| Original Score: 2/5

Radio Times

Shot by director Steve Barron in the style of a pop promo, Electric Dreams starts brightly but ultimately disintegrates.

Electric Dreams tries to be as up to the minute as the latest rock video. But it looks more like a tired holdover from the ''psychedelic'' 1960s.

There are all kinds of disassociated, disturbing ideas floating around in the screenplay, none of which survive the filmmakers' decision to play everything for cloying cuteness.

In the failure of Electric Dreams to blend and balance its ingredients properly, plot elements are lost (the brick), credibility is overtaxed (the lovelorn computer), and what remains is high tech without being high art.

Photographically busy, though to no meaningful purpose, mildly amusing at best, the piece finally expires with what could be, but probably isn't, a parody of a feel-good ending.

This is a lighthearted romantic comedy that has its moments, both humorous and thought-provoking.

It's not often that a modern movie has the courage to give us a hero who doesn't seem to be a cross between a disco god and an aerobics instructor, but the von Dohlen character is a nice change.

One of the more amusing computer-phobia flicks from the '80s, with an amazing title song by Girogio Moroder.

| Original Score: 3/5

Dated of course, being typically 80s, but maintains a certain charm.

It all comes together as an escapist package that is exactly what it should be: audience-friendly fun.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The story gets silly from time to time, stretching credibility to the breaking point, but the final result is an old-fashioned love triangle made new by the third party's being electronic.
