A silly movie I remember liking as a teenager. Its not particularly thrilling, nor is it very original. But the kids in the movie each have a different personality. That sets it apart from hundreds of other movies. Donner did a good job.
When two brothers find out they might lose their house they are desperate to find a way to keep their home. They find a treasure map and bring some friends along to find it. They are all out looking for the "X" and trying to get away from a group of bad guys who also want the treasure. Classic childhood favourite.
Perhaps with good visual effects and with a great soundtrack, however The Goonies delivered the impression of a lazy work in the script and of the overacted performances that turned the movie less credible. Furthermore, the story isn't nor original or compelling enough to entertain and fails to avoid the boredom that I expected since the beggining, even if it starts improving at the middle, but to late to make the spectator turn off the tv.
The Goonies is a lot of fun. All actors play a vital role in the film's success; adopting their character's quirky personalities wonderfully. The Goonies is action galore but becomes overly frenetic. Jump cuts disrupt flow & noise level alone makes actors' dialogue hard to follow. The Goonies certainly has visual humour & thrills, but the underground setting limits variety, and the film sacrifices any balance of light and shade. The Goonies is a film that captures your emotional investment, both in the characters and the fight for justice that they are involved in. It's easy to see why many have affection for The Goonies' lovable characters and unwavering sense of adventure.

This is my favorite movie by far. Has a lot of language and se Yao jones but that's what gives the movie it's sense of humor. It was absolutely amazing!!!
