Rating: 3/5 -- 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. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- full of 80s cheese, but for someone like me who grew up with this kind of stuff, it was the perfect escape Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- The special effects are competent. The acting is good, and I enjoyed Robert Preston's fast-talking The Music Man reprise and the gentle wit of Dan O'Herlihy's extraterrestrial. But the final spark was missing. Full Review

...[It] taps its sources with the zest of a vampire, and the result, if unoriginal, is nevertheless buoyant....Good-humored, bent on action and even touching...

Rating: B -- 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. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- If you're going to shamelessly rip off Star Wars, make sure you do it with as much spirit as this film.

Rating: 5/5 -- Overlooked sci-fi tale. Great fun.

Product Description:

Teenager Alex Rogan lives and works in the trailer-park that his mother owns. His life consists of contemplating his rather bleak future, and waiting for word on his college loan application to arrive. One night all this changes forever. Alex possesses an extraordinary skill at video games, and when this skill attracts a space-travelling recruiter looking for pilots to protect the galaxy from outside forces, he suddenly finds himself on another planet in the middle of an inter-galactic war. It seems that his game-playing abilities are an invaluable military asset to the embattled "Star League of Planets."
