Rating: 2/4 -- Donner and Evans can't find a way to extricate themselves from the impossible structure they have erected. They remain locked into the odd combination of the dreamy and the dreadful that is entirely of their own devising. Full Review
Rating: 1/5 -- A movie is not a public-service announcement, and a movie that tries to squeak by on intentions doesn't generally doesn't get very far. Viewed from any normal perspective, Radio Flyer never takes off. Full Review
Rating: C -- If nothing else, Radio Flyer is an original: The first feel-good movie about child abuse. Full Review
Too dark and upsetting for the family trade, this tale of a sadistic stepfather takes too many wrong moves to satisfy adults. Full Review
Rating: 1.5/5 -- Radio Flyer is a well-meaning failure, a muddled fantasy about child abuse that ponderously attempts to combine the grace of legend with the earnestness of a public-service announcement. Full Review

...Funny, warm moments...
Rating: 2/4 -- A very odd, expensive, ambitious failure that tries hard to achieve the Spielberg touch but succeeds only in reminding you of how few filmmakers can successfully lay claim to his territory. Full Review
Two young brothers' lives are turned upside down when their new alcoholic stepfather enters their world and begins to beat young Bobby. Devoted to their mom, they come up with their own solution and attempt to build a working airplane from their ordinary red wagon. In the process, they transform their own lives into an extraordinary adventure.
The story tells of two imaginative young boys who take refuge from an abusive stepfather and a neglectful mother by creating an elaborate fantasy world.
- The Radio Flyer conceptualist was Michael Scheffe.
- Tom Hanks, who does the narration, was uncredited.
