Could have been much worse than it was
18 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Watching Laserhawk with low expectations, I found it to be a surprisingly tolerable movie. It is far from great but could have been much worse. Sure, the movie was much too rushed, we never really get much time to properly connect with the characters and I think the pacing was the main reason why that was. The dialogue will make anybody laugh at how awkwardly cheesy it is, the big battle is lazily choreographed and makes no real impact other than perhaps unintentional humour and the story starts off interestingly but meanders badly into total and senseless nonsense. Laserhawk however doesn't look too bad from a visual point of view, the sets are detailed and colourful, the costumes are fitting and the special effects were surprisingly decent. The photography and editing while nothing inventive or extraordinary at least doesn't look amateurish either. The music is not too generic and does fit the movie while not plodding too much, while the sound is not overbearing or murky. The acting is better-than-average, Jason James Richter is a likable enough lead and Melissa Galianos matches him and is quite cute and fiery. Mark Hamill's appearance is brief but still memorable, while Gordon Currie and Ivan Rogers acquit themselves well albeit with rather clichéd characters. All in all, not great but could have been far worse. 5/10 Bethany Cox
