They usually show this movie on the sci-fi channel on the weekends. You should rent it and give it a chance. I really enjoyed this movie. It can be a little corny but it's a decent movie.

Its a good movie for small children. Anyone past the age of ten will find it sickening.

Definately aimed at a younger audience....I can't think of anything else to say!
The main character is chosen to help out in an intergalactic war because of his skills on a computer/amusement hall game-that is how he is recruited..... He signs up and does a brilliant job--the good guys win.

This movie is definitely oldschool. I thought it was great.

i've seen this movie probably over a hundred times as a kid.
i dont know if i out grew it or out watched it. but i think its better for a younger audiance. i think it would be interesting if they remade the film with todays special affects though.

Humph. It's people with ideas like that who are responsible for remakes of movies like The Italian Job and Rollerball

Interesting Disney movie from the Tron and Black Hole era. Good effects, though woefully underused. ALOT of preamble to the actual space battle. CG effects wayyyyyyy ahead of their time.

I'd guess that 75% of the movie as lead up. Though its well used for the most part. Not as serious a movie as Black Hole or Tron though. Though some find that part of its charm.

Too bad the arcade game wasnt as cool as the one in the movie.
heh-heh
