great
29 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie. It felt a lot like The Last Starfighter (which, as far as I'm concerned is a classic). Wait 5 years and it will become the next Last Starfighter. It just needs time to age and be eclipsed by more movies that play off the same theme.

I don't see why most people didn't like it. The fight scene is so cheese-tastic, it gives Star Trek a run for its money. That is the only bad thing i saw in the movie. But it was really really funny, so its not entirely bad.

This isn't a Mark Hammill movie. He is only on screen for 20 minutes tops. To compare this movie to the Matrix, he plays the Trinity. Completely necessary and entangled in the plot, but is ultimately only a delivery boy for the ending.
