5.0 out of 5 stars No Region 2? 26 July 2007
By Fishman
Format:DVD
Not having a Region 2 version is a travesty, this is a classic that set the trend using CGI on a Cray Supercomputer instead of plastic models.

I have just bought the Region 1, which plays on my PC. I am about to buy a Region Free DVD player just for this film!

A sci-fi film that the whole family can enjoy, cheesy but it doesn't take itself seriously and there are some great one-liners.

A forgotten gem crying out for Region 2 release.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's just a great film 26 Dec 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I've always loved this film, and they have done an amazing job with the blu-ray version. The picture quality is superb! All of the cgi space fighters, the barrier & laser stuff looks exactly as a 1984 film with computer generated images should look, with no Lucas revisionism.
The extra material is good as well, something I generally never look at. Some nice material from the cast, the technical guys and the Cray X-MP.
The dvd is definitely region 1.
The blu-ray while it is described as "A" on the website (Region: Region A/1), I played the blu-ray disc on "B" region locked (Australia) players, a Soniq & a Sony with no problems, And there is no mention on the blu-ray or the blu-ray package of any blu-ray region locking. So I suspect the blu-ray is region free.
Also note, I wasn't allowed to download a digital copy as I wasn't in an allowed country which really doesn't bother me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Starfighter DVD 20 Oct 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For me this movie was a pivotal point in my life long pursuit of all things science fiction, like Tron when I was a younger man (41 now) I loved this movie and went back to the cinema several times to see it prior to it's release on to beta-max (ask your parents what that was) and now of course DVD.
Put along side such block buster films in it's era like Star Wars (the first 3) it did not take a fraction of the box office takings that they did, but it stood apart for me as a simple yet touching take on all things sci-fi. This film had an innocence all of it's own, set in a backwater trailer park "Star bright" Alex (Lance Guest) played the character of a video game addict who innocently passed the recruitment test of Centauri (Robert Preston) by achieving the high score on the planted video game machine. Having passed the test by winning the game, Centaurie comes to earth to whisk Alex away to help fight in the ongoing battle that rages between the good people of Centurie's home world Rhylos and the evil "Xur and the Kodan armada" The computer graphics are I suppose laughable like Tron is today in comparison to the current HD offerings in action packed sci-fi like S.G.U. SO there you have it my two cents worth. If you liked his film you may also want to pick up a copy of another film I love called "Battle Beyond The Stars" Released in 1980 it also offered an hour and a half of escapism featuring now famous actors like Richard Thomas who played John-Boy in the Waltons (ask your parents) George Peppard, Robert Vaughn. Telling the story of a band of diverse heroes in outer space are assembled to defend a planet of peaceful colonists from an armada of aggressors (Sador of the Malmori) Anyways, Peace to all. "Live long and prosper" as a certain Vulcan would say

By C. O. DeRiemer HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Greetings, Starfighter," says the mechanical voice of the video game. "You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the frontier against Xun and the Ko-dan armada."

Alex Rogan (Lance Guest) is a teenager who lives in a desert trailer park "in the middle of tumbleweeds and tarantulas." He's reasonably smart, has a nice girlfriend and is a little shy. One evening he manages to set a world record on the flashy game set on the porch of the trailer park's ramshackle store. He soon finds out every word of the video game is true. Within hours he's been picked up by Centauri (Robert Preston), who takes him on an intergalactic visit to Star Fleet command. He learns the video game's purpose was to recruit potential Starfighters who have the skill and reflexes to take on the invading Ko-dan fleet. In fact, these Starfighters are all that stand between the Star League with it's mission of galactic peace and, in the words of Ambassador Enduran, "the black terror of the Ko-dan."

Alex is having none of this, even after he meets his lizard navigator, Grig (Dan O'Herlihy). Centauri reluctantly returns him to earth and tries to change his mind. "Alex! Alex!" he says, "you're walking away from history! History, Alex! Did Chris Columbus stay home? Nooooo. What if the Wright Brothers thought that only birds should fly? And did Galoka think that the Ulus were too ugly to save?" "Who's Galoka?" Alex asks. "Never mind." "Listen, Centauri," Alex says, "I'm not any of those guys. I'm a kid from a trailer park." Centauri looks at him and shakes his head. "If that's what you think," he tells Alex, "then that's all you'll ever be." Meanwhile the Ko-dan, aided by the traitor Xun, son of Enduran, break through the defense shield and destroy Starbase, the gunfighters and their pilots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute classic 10 April 2009
By Maddogg
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you like The Goonies, Back To The Future and The Explorers then this fits in perfectly with the movies of that era (the 80's), which by far was the best era for adventure and sci-fi movies.
When wathing the dvd at first you will think the special effects are quite poor but then you have to realise that this movie started C.G.I. and once that clicks then this movie is very engaging and you'll get lost in its amazing story, took me straight back to my youth.
You will not regret purchasing this dvd especially if it's for a child of around 10 yrs or somebody born early 80's who may remember it, enjoy... i did.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1980's classic.
This is a much under-rated teen Sci-Fi adventure of the 1980's, a minor classic and well worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC - TIMELY DELIVERED AND THE DISC IS EXCELLENT
This is a classic film which makes the fact that it is still unavailable in the UK on region 2 ridiculous. 4
Still, the region free copy of the US BD release is excellent. Read more
