Nathan Rabin
The Dissolve

A strange, wounded beast, filled with wonderful sequences and homemade charm, but also confused and anticlimactic.

Explorers itself is bubble-thin, but it glides by gracefully on the charm of its three young heroes and their vividly envisioned adventure in space.

Their space trip may be familiar, but they make it fun.

Without an interesting story or characters, special effects aren't enough to sustain a feature film.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The offbeat teen comedy gets off to a good start, but when it takes off in space the spoof becomes too alien to be anything more nourishing than junk food for the soul.

It looks terrific, moves along at a gallop, and is marvellously good-natured.

A family feature on Acid. What a strange, strange film.

October 8, 2003

An enjoyable, quintessentially 1980s science-fiction adventure, full of wit and crafty pop culture references.

Explorers,' which is lively but largely familiar until the point when it reaches its batty pinnacle, frequently shows off Mr. Dante's sense of humor to good advantage.

After so much build-up, the ending's a bit of a letdown, but as a kids flick, this is way above average.

Hardly out of this world, but a pleasing spinkle of space dust

The movie's pleasures are obvious and considerable.

Explorers remains a hopelessly schizophrenic film, obscenely eager to compromise its own originality.
