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.

    Brings back memories

    I'm loving the recent releases of so many 80's classics. This brings back so many memories of my childhood. Cloak and Dagger was one of those films that kids loved to fantsize they were part of. Great movie for anyone looking for the nostalgia of the 80s or any kid today under the age of 12.
