This movie was set back in a time where graphics were new to all of us. A person in a duck costume is carried away into earth by some type of quake or so he thought....

This movie has a lot of twists and turns and I enjoyed it very much so. I think my girls liked it a lot but I do feel the movie dragged a little at the end. Overall I felt the movie was still worth a 3 and I think this movie is good for kids between the ages of about 7 years old and up.

The film stars Lea Thompson, Jeffrey Jones, Tim Robbins, and the voice of Chip Zien as Howard. It was the first theatrically released film starring a Marvel Comics character.

Lucas proposed adapting the comic book following the production of American Graffiti, and began production on the film after stepping down as the president of Lucasfilm to focus on producing. Huyck and producer Gloria Katz's adaptation altered the personality of the character, and placed less emphasis on satirical storytelling in order to highlight the special effects work of Industrial Light & Magic. Following multiple production difficulties and mixed response to test screenings, the film was released to very poor critical and commercial reception.
