Does this 1989 "family" film hold up? Or did it just capitalize on the Nintendo trend? Find out in my review!

Pros

Great Cast

Nintendo is everywhere!

Strong Message

Stresses the importance of family

80s-tastic

The power glove, it's so bad.

Cons

Strong themes of Death and Loss will likely go over younger kids heads

The power glove is sooooooo bad.

      I agree with your assessment of the powerglove although I'm not sure the movie deserves a 9/10. I was I think 5 when I saw it last though so I can't give a definitive answer.

        How old are you when you saw it? I feel this is a case where I definitely have them nostalgia goggles on. Call me crazy but I believe the simplicity of the film is just fantastic.

          I guess I was past the target demo of the movie by the time it came out. I was disappointed that the movie didn't have more video game stuff in it. I don't remember thinking it was a great movie, maybe just okay.
