Synopsis


Solarbabies
A futuristic dystopia is the setting for this tale about good versus evil and a magical space-sphere out to reestablish a civilized society. An orphanage in a bleak and deserted landscape imprisons a large group of youngsters who have divided into good and bad groups. One day, while competing at roller-skate ball, the teams come across a bowling-ball-sized sphere named Bodhi (a Sanskrit word equivalent to "enlightened compassion"). Bodhi communicates with the good kids, but the bad ones cannot understand the sphere's electronic burbles. The nasty Darstar (Adrian Pasdar) steals Bodhi and heads out into the forbidden world beyond the orphanage. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    Actually i got to watch this movie agian in the past year... it had been almost 20 years since i last watched it. It was still just as good now as it was then. Yes, it is a little cheesy, as to be expected from any kid's movies from the 80's but the story as well as the characters blend well together.

    Bad Movie, and dvd

    The only thing good about 'Solarbabies' is its cast. The film itself is terrible as is this non-anamorphic widescreen transfer of the film. No film released on dvd after 2004 should be non-anamorphic. There is a useless full-screen viewing option as well. Skip it.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Solarbabies is a pretty cool sci-fi movie. Like Mad Max meets Gleaming the Cube. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
