SummaryAdd a Summary
By today’s CGI blood n’ guts standards, The Last Starfighter might seem a little tame. Consider, however, that it was made in 1984 – it was one of the first movies to use modern computer animation – and this little gem of a science fiction movie holds up pretty well. It is a classic story: a young man named Alex has big dreams and is desperate to escape his small town life. He has a particular talent with an arcade videogame called Starfighter, and once he beats the game, his destiny comes to call - in a tricked-out Lamborghini. But the game was actually a test, revealing Alex’s gift as a gunner, and before you can say “Centauri” the car turns into a space-ship that whisks him off to fight in an actual intergalactic war, one that threatens the future of Earth as well.
