Critic Reviews for Solarbabies

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

"Solarbabies" is a hilariously bad movie that doesn't make much sense and isn't much good when it does.

Better to either wallow in the nostalgia, or boggle at the ham-fistedness of it all.

Sep 29, 2017 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

It can't decide whether it's a poor cousin of 'E.T.' or a kissing cousin of 'Road Warrior.' Either way, it's is an uninvolving and derivative dud.

A group of sports teens in the far future joins forces with a mystical force is quite good.
