Critic Reviews for Star Kid

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

Star Kid, written and directed by Manny Coto, has a sweet heart and a lot of sly wit, and the symbiosis between boy and cyborg is handled cleverly. For kids of a certain age, it pushes the right buttons.

It's "The Guyver" meets "ET" with a hint of "Green Lantern"...

April 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Boy and robot battle scary alien; mild profanity, suspense.

January 26, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Star Kid is aimed straight for the youth market and that is probably where it will stay.

I remember when this movie came out I avoided it like the plague. Stupid title, ugly poster and directed by Manny "Dr. Giggles" Coto. Ugh! Man, was I wrong! This is actually a surprisingly great family film with some really good-looking FX. I'll definatly see this one again.
