Overview

The Dabney Coleman 80's kid classic Cloak and Dagger makes its long-awaited widescreen bow to DVD thanks to Universal Home Entertainment. With no menus or special features, the disc is devoid of anything special besides an anamorphic 1.85:1 widescreen picture and Dolby Digital 2.0 sound. Picture quality is extremely uneven with severe grain marking some scenes, while others look to be solid with slightly evident edge enhancements. Fans of the film might buy it simply for the widescreen enticement, though don't expect anything more. This is definitely one that Universal will need to revisit down the line.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Cloak and Dagger is a somewhat hokey but enjoyable spy thriller that works well for its target audience of youngsters. Coming out on the heels of Tron and WarGames, the film deals with similar themes of the crossover between the real world and computer games, which in many ways anticipated the Internet. Henry Thomas proves that E.T. was no fluke with another capable performance, which when combined with the clever script, carries this to the level of a likeable escapist fantasy. Dabney Coleman is strong in the dual role of the young video game enthusiast's father and Jack Flack, the beret-clad hero of said game. As the two eventually become one, it's a warm comment on the dormant heroism any father can call upon by believing in and loving his son. Add in a few fun set pieces, and Cloak and Dagger becomes a satisfying, if slight, mix of family entertainment.
