1986, Movie, PG-13, 94 mins


SOLARBABIES is a cookbook film of unlikely ingredients, incorporating parts of the MAD MAX trilogy, with sections of E.T., ROLLERBALL, DUNE, and a smattering of biker films as well. The story opens in the future, where the world has been transformed into a vast desert, thanks to the nefarious doings of an organization known as "The Protectorate." Orphaned children and teenagers now live in special camps run by the Protectorate. Their only outlet is a hockey-like game played on rollerskates. The Solarbabies is one of the teams in this futuristic sporting event. Solarbaby Daniel (Lukas Haas) is contacted by Bodhi, a sort of magic glowing bowling ball, which wants to help the plucky band save the world. The acting is lame and the rehashed script is silly. The film drags on and on until its obvious and none-too-thrilling conclusion. This is a film to punish the kids with if their behavior grows intolerable. leave a comment
