The plot is as barebones a space movie will allow, but The Last Starfighter captures an era and eager style of filmmaking well.

Great fun, with some truly comical moments; a must for pulp-heads and video-junkies.
The quintessential '80s artifact -- though in this case I mean that in the best way possible. It arrived at a time when earnestness hadn't yet been overwhelmed by cynicism.
It embraces its derivativeness and runs with it to deliver a fun kids space opera that's simple, but exciting.
full of 80s cheese, but for someone like me who grew up with this kind of stuff, it was the perfect escape
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.
Definite "Star Wars" influenced, this trailer park adventure takes off, succeeds on own.
Overlooked sci-fi tale. Great fun.
If you're going to shamelessly rip off Star Wars, make sure you do it with as much spirit as this film.
The Last Star Fighter is an entertaining Sci Fi action adventure that I quite enjoyed. Although not perfect, the film is very entertaining from start to finish. Many critics have said that this is similar to Star Wars, and I can see why, but there is still plenty of originality to the film to make it a memorable viewing experience. Though not perfect, The Last Star Fighter is still a film with plenty of charm, and nostalgia value, and for that it works very well. Director Nick Castle crafts a Sci Fi adventure with heart, and the cast do a great job in their performances to really make this an amusing ride. Although not as great as others in the genre, this is a film worth seeing if you're a fan of Sci Fi. The film's flaws are that it does look a bit dated by today's standards, but if you grew up watching it, you won't mind that much. Some areas could have been improved upon as well, and I felt that this film could have been great, instead it's a film that's good, but never realizes its potential. Overall, the film is entertaining and it is a film that manages to work around its shortcomings to create something memorable. The cast keep you engaged and there are some impressive effects that are a highlight of the picture. I found this one to be much better than what I thought it was going to be. If you're looking for a good Sci Fi film, then give this one a shot, you may be surprised by how good this one is.
Despite the obvious Star Wars overtones/wholesale rip-offs, this is a fun film with some great scenes. Full review later.
Even for a sci-fi movie the story is really out there, and not in a good way. This movie is corny and predictable. I didn't care for it.
I really don't care if this is a so-called rip off of Star Wars, it's too amazing and fun to be just as simple as that. This really takes the generation's mindset of the time, hoping to see what space and adventure had to offer. It has a very fun story, great acting and characters, and enough early oddball cgi to keep anyone entertained and intrigued. I just find this to have some of the best qualities that both Sci-Fi and Fantasy have to offer.
