Critic Reviews for Space Raiders

All Critics (3)

All the space battles and rogue banter in the world can't scrape away the crummy penny-pinching vibe of this excessively noisy feature.

Audience Reviews for Space Raiders

With all the motion control footage being reused from Battle Beyond the Stars, there is little new this film offers. The plot is SO thin, that is is nearly unbelievable that crew did not mutiny and just flush the kid out the airlock. Also that kid has to be the worst child actor of all time, just under Jennifer Connelly in Labyrinth. I was squirming in my seat wanting to yell at my screen to give the kid direction when he first boards the ship. The funnest part of this movie for me was listening to the effects of the ships and the lasers matching them up to other movies. Mostly Battlestar Galactica. This film was nearly totally forgettable except for more than 20 years the line "It's not like shooting the rocks" has been stuck in my head. Thank you Mr. Cohen.
