Rating: 3/5 -- A strange, wounded beast, filled with wonderful sequences and homemade charm, but also confused and anticlimactic. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Explorers itself is bubble-thin, but it glides by gracefully on the charm of its three young heroes and their vividly envisioned adventure in space. Full Review

Explorers remains a hopelessly schizophrenic film, obscenely eager to compromise its own originality. Full Review

Rating: B- -- The offbeat teen comedy gets off to a good start, but when it takes off in space the spoof becomes too alien to be anything more nourishing than junk food for the soul. Full Review

...One of the weirdest and most endearingly offbeat alien pictures to have surfaced in recent years....[The] special effects work is highly accomplished...

Product Description:

This adventurous space tale stars Ethan Hawke (in his film debut at the age of 14) and young star River Phoenix as misfit best friends whose dreams of space travel become a reality when they create an interplanetary spacecraft in their homemade laboratory. Ben Crandall (Hawke) is a young visionary who dreams of space travel while watching late-night B monster movies, pouring over comic books, and playing Galaga in the confines of his bedroom. But one night he has a vivid dream of flying over a space-like circuit board and shares his visions with his best friend Wolfgang (Phoenix), a young scientific genius who is able to translate his dreams into a complex computer program that actually works. With the help of their new friend (Jason Presson), they create a homemade spacecraft and embark on a secret adventure to another galaxy where they find that things are not always as different as they seem. EXPLORERS features highly imaginative special effects and entertaining space creations from George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic.
