Before The Last Samurai there was... The Last Starfighter! (Fan tagline)
He didn't find his dreams... his dreams found him.
Alex Rogan is a small town teenager with big time dreams. Dreams of college... of success... of marrying his girlfriend, Maggie. He's just like everybody else, except Alex has a very special talent... that no one on Earth can appreciate. But, tonight, a mysterious stranger has called on Alex. He's come from a galaxy that's under attack from an alien force. And Alex's unique ability is their last hope.
He's got one extraordinary chance at the dream of a lifetime.
