Audience Reviews for Solarbabies

What can be said about this film? ... It's not good. It's pretty boring. But it does have an impressive cast just before they made it big. Honestly, Mel Brooks produced a Roger Corman film. I wish the end result was funnier in its badness.

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