There is little that is original in Starman, but at least it has chosen good models.

The best special effects are in the first five minutes. Thereafter, it's all rather predictable.

Bridges' portrayal of Starman can be as hard to take as the lapses in logic.

It isn't pleasant to watch a talented filmmaker like John Carpenter willfully distort his personality to fit a commercial (read Spielbergian) profile, and only the opening suspense-horror sequences have the weight of real involvement.

Jeff Bridges as appealing alien; best for teens.

Starman contains the potential to be a very silly movie, but the two actors have so much sympathy for their characters that the movie, advertised as space fiction, turns into one of 1984's more touching love stories.

Flipside Movie Emporium

As science fiction, it's decent enough, but it finds its real power as a weird, offbeat romance. Bridges has rarely been better.

Carpenter is a master of framing for widescreen, and Starman is certainly a forum for him to show off his prowess behind the lens.

Starman is more of a love story than a sci-fi movie. Take your girlfriend.
