  • "Jack Flack always escapes!"
    Cloak And Dagger is a sweet 80's family movie directed by Richard Franklin (Psycho II). The movie succeeds in being a kiddie suspense/thriller flick without seeming too sappy, like most children's movies are.

    The star of this classic flick is Henry Thomas, who played Elliot in Speilberg's E.T. Extra Terrestrial, as David Osborne, a young video game fan who has an imaginary friend, a Cloak And Dagger video game hero named Jack Flack, played by Dabney Coleman (9 To 5), and a real life friend named Kim, played by Christina Nigra (Twilight Zone: The Movie). David's father, also played by Coleman, doesn't spend time with him so he learns to depend on himself. However, his self dependency is about to wear out when his game antics turn real following an incident he witnesses when a game technician gets murdered by a couple of foreign spies but not before the victim hands him a copy of Cloak And Dagger that holds government secrets.

    Cloak And Dagger is one of those films that I've probably watched hundreds of times when I was a kid. It kind of scared the heck out of me when I was young (especially the scene when the lady exposes her hand that's missing some fingers). Even though the film has some excusable flaws (now that I'm adult, I realize these things!) because of it's appeal to children, Cloak And Dagger remains to be one of my childhood favorites!

    The film also stars Michael Murphy (Batman Returns), William Forsythe (The Devil's Rejects), and the old couple John Mcintire and Jeanette Nolan (previously appearing together in the 1960 horror classic Psycho).

  • I don't know what it is about this movie...
    But we never get tired of it! It actually isn't that well done...the acting is a bit dorky, the situation in the movie is a little bizarre for two children to be handling...but we love it just the same! It's one movie we can always come back to if there is nothing else on, and feel as though we are seeing it again for the first time! Enjoy!...more info

  • Very slim pickin's here...
    I won't go into the movie itself, as other reviewers have done a more than adequate job of that. Suffice to say that I have always enjoyed "Cloak & Dagger," despite the hokiness of some of the scenes (not to mention the laughable visuals at the end). This movie still rates at least 4 stars from me. However, Amazon reviews are supposed to cover the ENTIRE product, and not just the movie itself.

    In two words: It stinks.

    No trailer. No subtitles. No scene selections. No extras of any kind. Not even a menu. When you slide the disc in, the movie starts right up. When the movie finishes, it starts over again. If you press the "menu" button on your remote, nothing happens. Personally, I'd prefer it if after the movie finished, playback would stop and you'd go to a scene selection menu. Even a still image telling you the movie was over would be better than playback looping back forever.

    I suppose I should be glad Universal even bothered to release this movie on DVD. It's just disappointing that they obviously didn't put any thought or effort into it....more info
  • A Fun Mystery and Suspense Movie That The Whole Family Can Watch Together!
    I watched Cloak and Dagger on cable, I think it was HBO or Cinemax and I watched the movie several times and just really liked and enjoyed it! Dabney Coleman and Henry Thomas were both great in this fun movie and now that a DVD has finally been released I will definitely think of buying it for my DVD collection....more info
  • Cloak & Dagger
    When I was a kid, I use to watch this all the time. I remember watching it over and over. I loved it. I recently bought it on dvd so my daughter (whom is 14) can watch it. Unfortunately, she did not enjoy it. I though have very fond memories of it. I still enjoy it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to watch something from the past. I give it a THUMBS UP....more info

  • Cloak and Stupid!
    So I'm ashamed to admit that I have this relative, actually a couple of them who really like this movie. I can't believe parents let their kids grow up on this trash. I mean, what is happening to this world? First of all... it is so stupid.... like... all this stuff happens... and... it's like... what? Like, what? I mean... first of all... there's this little girl in it who sounds like a grandma... and looks like an old lady. I mean, she totally has this head that's too big for her body. Who chose this little blond freak? She looks like this old lady who worked at my elementary school... you know... one of those old chicks who sounds like they're crazy and moves their head around on their neck like their head is going to fall off..... yeah.... I know you know what I'm talking about. EVERY SINGLE SCHOOL HAS THEM. I mean, where do they find these people? I bet that's why this little girl never even became a real actress... first of all... she's ugly... second... she probably realized her real calling in life was to be one of those old ladies with the whistle at recess. So, yeah, that's the first big mistake... number two... the kid's imaginary friend and the kid's dad are played by the SAME PERSON... what? I mean, WHAT?! Do they think we're STUPID, or something? Like we wouldn't notice??? I mean, I just can't believe it! They must have had a really low budget and the nerve to think that we wouldn't be able to tell the difference because they're wearing different costumes! And the invisible guy dies??? What? Why? He's freaking NOT REAL... this movie... makes no sense. Only watch it if you feel like slapping yourself in the face over and over again. It would be better to go into the bathroom right now and light your nose on fire....more info

  • Two kids suddenly thrown into a goosebump-raising thriller!
    I saw this film with my buddies at a junior high school and though we all had a very good time, I still looked a little fearfully around to see if there are bad guys lurking nearby in broad daylight, waiting to leap right out and grab me. I mean, there's real adult-style violence and real KILLING even though a couple of young kids appeared in this film. Gad, this poor boy had to use his very own wits to keep himself from being grabbed and shot by REAL thugs AND this meant he used a real gun and took a car for a joyride drive! Mark my words, your knuckles will remain white-knuckled all the way to the very end - where the kid will STILL be in deadly peril! And you'll never see sweet-looking old grandparents the same way ever again!...more info
  • Best Youth Oriented Action/Adventure Film
    Not many films in recent decades are able to make a storyline interesting to both adults and children, but Cloak and Dagger is a very solid and entertaining action/adventure movie for all members of the family.

    As I grew up, I must have watched this film several dozen times. It is a very responsible movie, exploring accurately the nature of childhood desires for adventure and the unpleasant effects that warfare and espionage realistically bring.

    This movie is definitely worthy of repeat viewing with your children....more info

  • Great Kids Movie
    My grown children loved this movie when they were younger (6-11 years old). We had it on VHS tape and was very pleased to find it on DVD. My grandson loves this movie...he watches it almost every weekend.

    I would highly recommend it for anyone with pre-teen children in the house....more info
