Did You Know?


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 »


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.

Good Sci-Fi
10 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the best movie I have found in the Wal-mart DVD for a $1 bin. I expected a lot worse and was pleasantly surprised. The effects were pretty good, the plot was okay, most of it believable for a sci-fi plot, the acting was very even. (Mark Hamill didn't look like the teacher in drama class around a bunch of beginners)I hadn't seen most of the actors before but they did a nice job. (Minus the parents)

Not sure why I never heard of this movie when it came out. I wasn't in the cave then. So pull that spare change out of your couch and take a take a ride on the wild side. It all will be worth it.

On a scale of 1 to ten I rate Last Starfighter a 10.5 and Megaforce a 2 (but still love it) so a 7 isn't all that bad.
