Solarbabies (1986)

solarbabies “Remember, behavior determines existence… Stick with us, learn to serve the Order, and you’ll achieve a decent life-grid. ” – The Warden

Number of Times Seen – Probably about 5-10 times (cable in the 80’s and 16 Mar 2015)

Brief Synopsis – In a dystopian future, a group of teenagers in an orphanage who are experts in a rollerskating sport discover a foreign orb that helps them get the courage to cross the desert to find freedom

My Take on it – This is a movie that I haven’t seen in probably 25 years and I recall watching it numerous times on cable as a kid and enjoying it very much.

Rewatching it, I have no clue what I liked about this as a kid.

The plot is extremely silly and the characters leave so much to be desired.

Waste of time for the actors (Jason Patrick, Jami Gertz, Lucas Haas, Richard Jordon and Charkes Durning.

Not to mention a waste of time for us viewers too.

Bottom Line – Compkete waste of time. The storyline and dialogue are so silly. Can’t believe I enjoyed this as a kid.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – All of the main characters’ names are from enlightenment legends and myths from various cultures. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy
