The Last Starfighter

Alex Rogan is a small-time teenager with big-time dreams. One night he gets the high score on his favorite video game: “The Last Starfighter”. Little does he know that the game is actually a recruitment tool for a real space battle! Soon a mysterious stranger calls on Alex, and propels him into a dream beyond his imagination. Alex is called upon to be the last Starfighter, the only hope of the Star League in their last-ditch efforts to save the universe. A special effects marvel for all ages!

"It's special movie magic. . . compelling, involving and good clean fun. . . with enough freshness and excitement of its own to keep...all ages entertained through the summer." — Rex Reed, the New York Post.

"The Last Starfighter is good-humored, bent on action and even touching." — The New York Times
