I frankly can't imagine any fan of this film not being over the moon (no pun intended) about the uptick in clarity and detail levels across the board in this presentation when compared to the pretty lackluster video on the old Universal Blu-ray. All in all, this is another fantastic upgrade of a cult item by Arrow which should certainly be appreciated by most fans. Highly recommended.
The Last Starfighter (1984) is one of those great, escapist adventure films that so many kids saw on video and have a soft spot for to this day. Thanks to Arrow Video's new Blu-ray edition and its squeaky-clean 4K restoration, we know that the movie holds up to our childhood memories. This is a great set for any Starfighter fan.
—Under The Radar Mag
Arrow Video's new Blu-ray of The Last Starfighter is a staggeringly excellent upgrade in every category. The film itself is like a warm blanket-perfectly cozy and a much-needed shot of good ole positivity. With a nearly perfect presentation and a wonderful assortment extras new and old, this is definitely the kind of upgrade that fans of the film will appreciate. Highly recommended!
—The Digital Bits
The Last Starfighter remains one of the quintessential films that demonstrates practically everything audiences loved about films from the 1980's. This release looks and sounds fantastic... Highest recommendation possible.
—Sci Fi History
The Blu-ray provides very good picture and audio along with a long roster of bonus materials.... I can't complain about this fine Blu-ray release.
