Trivia

The character M.K. Ultra, comic book writer Rodney Terence Stanko's (Gordon Currie) pen-name, is taken from the code name for the famous 1950s CIA experiment MK-ULTRA where the CIA gave LSD to unsuspecting soldiers and civilians. See more »

Goofs

The film is supposed to be in the United States, with the US Air Force, and kids in a small town in Wisconsin. But, in the hamburger restaurant scene, there is a sign advertising "poutine". Poutine is a favorite in Quebec, it is the Canadian equivalent of French fries, but with brown gravy and cheese curds. A hamburger joint in the U.S. would offer French fries, not poutine. See more »

Pretty Good Movie, Considering...
20 March 2005 | by (Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching this movie right now on Showcase (Canada). I had no clue what the movie was, but there was nothing much on TV, so I just watched it.

This movie, for what it is, is actually a very decent film. Including the obvious Mark Hamill, I noticed a couple other actors I knew, including the main star, Jason James Richter (from "Free Wily" and "The Neverending Story III"). Richter did well, as did the fiery and cute Melissa Galianos (who played as Cara).

It's a semi-adventurous, semi-science fiction movie with a nice uniqueness to it: this one focuses more on the characters and their task-at-hand rather than the alien life the movie deals with.

Assuming there was probably not much funding for this film, there were actually impressive, really decent special effects in the film - much more decent than a lot of other so-called more popular movies/TV shows out there, anyway.

In the end, Laserhawk has a couple loose ends that are basically not explained, but who cares... it was a good movie overall, in my opinion. It's also an especially good movie if you take it for what it is, and not unfairly compare it to the top-tier films like it out there.

If you're the type of person to be either very picky, or maybe only like high-end films, steer clear of this one; if not, and you enjoy the little fun/adventurous-type romps out there for what they're worth (such as "Little Monsters," "Howard the Duck," or "The Goonies"), then you'll probably like this one.

Thanks a lot, M. Sorge
