Movie Reviews

Star kid is a star!
cousinpaco | Cincinnati, OH United States | 07/23/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"i like star kid. i want a star kid suit myself to play with. he can fight bullies and look scary but star kid is really just a boy. my best part of the show was star kids special effects. it looked much realer than power rangers. they are grown ups, and star kid is a kid. the suit makes him look bigger and feel happier. if i get lonesome i ask to watch star kid and i pretend to be star kid after the movie. i like star kid!"

Great Film...

"I am a big Joseph Mazzello fan and all his films I've seen have all gotten big 4 or 5's from me in the rating scale so I figured I'd give this one a shot. I was happy I did. The acting is avergley good except for Joseph who did a excellent job as always. The film is about a 12 year old kid Spencer Griffith(Joseph Mazzello) who is lonesome and just wants to be liked, one day when hes inside his room at night reading his comics ext. He catches a glimpse of a bright object falling from the sky and into a old junkyard not too far away. He investigates and ends up finding a cybor suit that he eventually gets inside of thus becoming the 'Star Kid'. He decides to do some payback to bullys and other people who have been mean to him but then a evil monster comes to the town bent on destroying earth and anything that gets in its way. Thats when the trouble begins.

The film is a nice and adventorous tale which i'm sad to say is impossible to find on DVD! I love this movie and is a great film to see if your ever depressed or just want to get 'out of this world'. I recommend it."
The Rock Throw Is Classic!

"This is a great movie about a kid named Spencer Griffith. He is a pretty normal 12-year-old who gets bullied around a lot. He's into comic books. He wants to be friends with a certain girl in his class but whenever he tries to talk to her he goes mute.One day while he was sitting in his room alone he sees something fall from the sky and land in the local junkyard. He goes to investigate and finds an a capsule. He throws a rock at it. Nothing happens, so he touches it. It opens up to reveal an alien suit that asks him if he needs transport. He says yes and goes inside. Spencer then proceeds to go around town having fun in his suit and getting back at his bullies. But a bigger evil is lurking around and soon he needs to decide the fate of mankind.This is an excellent movie, it is a bit cheesy at times but I like it. Joseph Mazzello is superb as Spencer. This is also the first movie where he was the biggest name. I give this great movie 5 stars. But I don't recommend it to anyone who is not a child at heart or you'll just shrug it off as a bad cheesy movie.PS: Is it just me, or does every Joseph Mazzello movie have things thrown? Especially rocks. Jurassic Park, Radio Flyer, Simon Birch, Three Wishes, and The Cure all have things thrown. It's a Joseph Mazzello movie trademark."
