    Are we supposed to like the main character of this film? At the beginning he has a wife and 3 kids, by the end spoiler I didn't experience as much wonderment watching this film as I expected. I much prefer the swashbuckling space adventure flick that came out the same year. 7 years 6 months ago

    This is a movie to talk about after seeing it.

    Love Spielberg's vision.

    Although the graphics are impressive for the time period it was made, this movie failed to impress me. The characters were mostly unlikable, it was too chaotic and noisy, and it was irritably slow-paced.
    Also, most annoying kids. EVER.

    This is not my cup of tea.
