It embraces its derivativeness and runs with it to deliver a fun kids space opera that's simple, but exciting.

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.

Charmingly hokey...takes the suburban-working-class-folks-meet-space-aliens paradigm of early Spielberg and marries it to Lucas' Star Wars. [Blu-ray]

the rousing kind of kid flick that inspires ten-year-old boys to grab broomsticks, storm the neighborhood hill, and go nuts on pretend aliens with ridiculous faux karate moves.

It's not an award-winner or cult classic, but The Last Starfighter is certainly one of the coolest "cable flicks" you're likely to come across.
