Trivia

After the movie's cinematic debut, Joseph Mazzello was asked in a magazine interview how he liked the role, with the interviewer assuming playing a kid in an exo-suit must have been exciting. Joseph replied it wasn't very much fun, since a stuntman did all of the exterior shots of the Cyborsuit and all he got to do for the reaction shots was sit on a stool in front of a screen.

Usual Family Movie...
5 February 2000 | by (Castro Valley, U.S.A) – See all my reviews

I watched this with my younger brother and he loved it.

We-ll, I've seen these kind of movies since 7, and I know everything what goes on family movies. Let's see, there's a kid(sort of a nerd type) who is bullied by a *bad* kid, and he meets a new friend(eg.E.T or alien). They go round'n'round the journey and at the ending, the new friend has to go home. So, the kid cries, says goodbye, hugs the friend...

I've seen this kind of movies SO many times. "Star Kid" is no exception, but the computer graphics and the special effects were great. I give this movie: 6 out of 10.
