Critic Reviews for The Last Starfighter
Great fun, with some truly comical moments; a must for pulp-heads and video-junkies.
It embraces its derivativeness and runs with it to deliver a fun kids space opera that's simple, but exciting.
full of 80s cheese, but for someone like me who grew up with this kind of stuff, it was the perfect escape
One of the few successful Spielberg clones, administering the usual routine of aliens and mouth-agape wonder with friendly determination and a perfect, just perfect, game boy screenwriting hook.
The simplistic plot and simple story work thanks to the energy and light touch of director Nick Castle.
Audience Reviews for The Last Starfighter
The Last Star Fighter is an entertaining Sci Fi action adventure that I quite enjoyed. Although not perfect, the film is very entertaining from start to finish. Many critics have said that this is similar to Star Wars, and I can see why, but there is still plenty of originality to the film to make it a memorable viewing experience. Though not perfect, The Last Star Fighter is still a film with plenty of charm, and nostalgia value, and for that it works very well. Director Nick Castle crafts a Sci Fi adventure with heart, and the cast do a great job in their performances to really make this an amusing ride. Although not as great as others in the genre, this is a film worth seeing if you're a fan of Sci Fi. The film's flaws are that it does look a bit dated by today's standards, but if you grew up watching it, you won't mind that much. Some areas could have been improved upon as well, and I felt that this film could have been great, instead it's a film that's good, but never realizes its potential. Overall, the film is entertaining and it is a film that manages to work around its shortcomings to create something memorable. The cast keep you engaged and there are some impressive effects that are a highlight of the picture. I found this one to be much better than what I thought it was going to be. If you're looking for a good Sci Fi film, then give this one a shot, you may be surprised by how good this one is.
Despite the obvious Star Wars overtones/wholesale rip-offs, this is a fun film with some great scenes. Full review later.
Even for a sci-fi movie the story is really out there, and not in a good way. This movie is corny and predictable. I didn't care for it.
