Fun But Could Have Been So Much Better
10 August 2012 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is a fun film for children I suppose but it is lacking in imagination or creativity. It's "in one ear and out the other". The plot is quite lame although for a young adolescent boy, the "what if it was me" factor is there and will probably push the right buttons just like the instant sugar rush from a cola drink. I just think it's a shame that the acting is so bad and the budget wasn't used for something more worthwhile. This film borrows so much from "Flight of the Navigator" but the unrealistic teen banter and focus on impressing the girls being the be all and end all for teen boys lets it down. My advice for parents... it's harmless but also a bit mindless. If your children haven't yet seen "Flight of the Navigator" then turn them on to that instead. It has so much more going for it; a much better plot for one thing and it's still relatively un-dated for a film that was made over 25 years ago. "Skyrunners" is a poor copy and not nearly so "wholesome".
