  • Most of the plot points in this film are believable, including the old tried-and-true secret spy chip in the video game ploy, but there are some elements I found slightly off-base

      This film came out shortly after Henry Thomas came to worldwide attention in E.T. Well-cast in this role, this was the type of role best suited for Henry Thomas. He comes across as a kid with a great imagination and this movie blends both creatively.

      It is the story of a boy who is trying to have a relationship with his single dad, whose career in the military takes him away from home most of


      the time. So his son, played by Henry Thomas, invents a secret agent superhero who looks exactly like his dad, and he spends most of his time in Jack Flak’s world, dealing blows to the bad guys. Jack Flak becomes an imaginary friend to Thomas, especially when events unfold in his life that requires someone of Jack’s skills to help Thomas out of some potentially life-threatening situations. Of course, those around him think he’s ...

      • losing his grip on reality, and it isn’t until the end that they realize the events he supposedly made up are real and people begin dying.

        The film ends with father and son coming together at last, to begin forming that relationship that both sorely need. Jack Flak, having helped save the good guys in him most important escapade ever, leaves both Thomas’ imagination and the scene, off into the sunset to no doubt help

        another longing child in need.

        Most of the plot points in this film are believable, including the old tried-and-true secret spy chip in the video game ploy, but there are some elements I found slightly off-base. Mainly, if Flak was Thomas’ imaginary friend, why’d one of the bad guys be made to almost see him at a crucial moment. Other than that, this is a charming adventure that I plan to introduce to my kids very soon.
