Fresh: One of the few successful Spielberg clones, administering the usual routine of aliens and mouth-agape wonder with friendly determination and a perfect, just perfect, game boy screenwriting hook.

A teenager completes an arcade machine in a backwater trailer park to find it was actually a test to find pilots to fight in an interstellar war. Enjoyable boys own sci-fi aimed squarely at kids with some nice old school CGI and a likeable cast of supporting characters. Good fun.
