Critic Reviews for Cloak and Dagger

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

Cloak and Dagger is fun for adults as well as older kids, thanks to the imaginative writing (by Tom Holland) and direction (by Richard Franklin).

The last thing we need right now is another movie about a boy caught up in the world of computer games - but ''Cloak and Dagger,'' while fitting that mold, is clever and enjoyable anyhow.

For a movie so obsessed with the line between reality and make-believe, it never knows which side it wants to be on.

A film with much to recommend it, Cloak and Dagger feels like a Hitchcock movie produced by Walt Disney.

Fantasy-adventure is exciting, but full of dark mayhem.

So-so Dabney Coleman kid fantasy-adventure yarn.

Audience Reviews for Cloak and Dagger

A cute little kids spy film, about military secrets being smuggled out of the county in Atari Game Cartages. Funny to see how basic graphics were in 1983, not a great film but should keep those under 13 amused for more then 5 minutes. I saw it on Netflix Stream. 3 Stars

An espionage obsessed 12 year old (Elliot from ET) fights some really under qualified bad guys who are trying to get there hands on an Atari game with top secret information embedded in it.

Fairly entertaining, I'd recommend it to kids under 13, but being they don't know what Atari is I'm not sure it'll fly. Definitely worth remaking.

Amazing, this is kids action movie! I loved it, it's a lot of fun, and very suspenseful.
