Thankfully this Star Wars rip-off doesn't take itself seriously.

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.

If you're going to shamelessly rip off Star Wars, make sure you do it with as much spirit as this film.

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.

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

Great fun, with some truly comical moments; a must for pulp-heads and video-junkies.

The simplistic plot and simple story work thanks to the energy and light touch of director Nick Castle.

full of 80s cheese, but for someone like me who grew up with this kind of stuff, it was the perfect escape

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