Watch Explorers - Alternative Versions.
All kids should watch this - between the ages of 6 and 13. I saw this when
it came out on video - I was 8 - don't know how I missed it at the cinema -
it couldn't have had a big release in the UK.
I loved the detail and imagination within this movie - like the one dream
that the three boys all share, the sphere they create from their computer,
the guard dog they give bubble gum to, the amusement ride seat they turn
into their spaceship, with windows made from the fronts of washing-machines
and TVs. And our three heroes make a great team. They are all very different
in character, yet share that same dream of escape and adventure.
Ethan Hawke is the main hero - the one that most viewers will relate to -
the average 80's kid hooked on television, daydreaming during school lessons
and a huge crush on the girl next door.
River Phoenix is his nerdy computer-whiz friend with an Einstein-like crazy
father (played by James Cromwell) and Jason Presson is the mature, yet weird
kid with a troubled home-life.
The magic of this movie is in its innocence and the dreams that the kids are
able to turn into reality. The first half is pure 80's kids' adventure
movie. The second half becomes pure "Dante", as it dives into 50's-style
B-movie sci-fi - exactly what Dante is referencing and sending up, yet
paying homage to at the same time.
What our heroes find out in space is certainly not what they expect or what
we expect. They feel let down by their discovery and in some way, we do
But there are so many great scenes in this film - the chemistry between the
3 main actors is great - they really bond well together and we get drawn
into the film because of Dante's attention to detail in these characters.
It's a funny combination of child adventure and B-movie sci-fi but kids will
love it, and as you grow up, you learn to see (like many great kids' films)
many new details that pass you by as a kid but keep you entertained all over
again from a different perspective.
A highly overlooked 80's adventure movie, almost as good as The Goonies, but
far less commercial, due to Dante's unique approach.
Go and see it now, or see it again or watch it with your kids - you will all
