Editorial Reviews

Davey Osborne is an imaginative youngster who loves role-playing games, and who often enlists the aid of his best friend, an imaginary super-spy named Jack Flack. One day he witnesses a real murder of an FBI agent who passes a videogame called "Cloak & Dagger" to him before he dies. When the police come, the body is gone, and no one will believe him, including his father, Col. Hal Osborne. Soon Davey finds himself up to his neck in hairbreadth escapes, real bullets, and slam-bang action as the hitmen close in. Can Jack save him before time runs out? Cloak & Dagger stars Henry Thomas of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Dabney Coleman in a dual role of Jack and Davey's father, and Michael Murphy.

Great who- done- it family movie.

I remember watching these movies as a child and love them just as the first time I saw them.

Henry Thomas of E.T. fame and Dabney Coleman are both great in this.

Remember that little boy named Elliot from the film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)? Well, his name is Henry Thomas, and while that was certainly the role he will probably be forever tied to, he actually did go one to make a number of films after that, including this one titled Cloak & Dagger (1984), and has been working steadily ever since, overcoming the general conception that child stars who peak so early often end up as casualties of The System, their careers, and their lives, on a continual downward spiral eventually ending up as fodder for some sleazy tabloid talk show, but I digress...directed by Richard Franklin (Roadgames, Psycho II), the film stars, as I've mentioned, Henry Thomas, along with Dabney Coleman (Tootsie, Wargames). Also appearing is Michael Murphy (Count Yorga, Vampire, Shocker), Christina Nigra (Twilight Zone: The Movie), the eternally crusty John McIntire (Psycho, Elmer Gantry), Jeanette Nolan (she was the voice of Mrs. Bates in the original Psycho), and William Forsythe (The Rock). Also appearing in a `don't blink or you'll miss him' role is Louie Anderson, in an unforgettable performance in the character credited as `Second Taxi Driver'.

Thomas plays Davey Osbourne, a boy obsessed with role playing games, especially ones featuring a fictional super-spy character named Jack Flack who Davey projects as a real person, often having conversations and receiving advice from throughout the film (the character of Jack Flack is played by Coleman, who also has the role of Hal Osbourne, Davey's recently widowed and somewhat strict, but loving, father).

I saw this movie in the theater when I was nine years old, back then I had a little crush on Henry Thomas because of ET, but this film I love soo much. It's been one of my favorites ever since I saw it and I even joined Columbia House a few years back because they were the only place I could find the tape for a reasonable price. Of course now I'm a greedy chic who wants the DVD. I've never been a fan of video games, but this movie doesn't really play like one. It's more like an action movie for kids and adults, hey even my dad loved it, that centers around a video game. I also love the fact that it's not just for boys, since Davey's (Henry Thomas) best friend, Kim, is a girl (Christina Nigra) girls in general get to be part of the action. This movie is great for kids and adults of any age, sure they may laugh now at the Atari games of way back when the people were in no way life like and walked like robots, but that's not the important part; I think the best part of this film is the message that having a super hero as your hero can be fun, but a real superhero can be anyone, like your dad.

I remember seeing the preview for this back in 84 when it was theatrically released but didnt get to see it until it came out on video, and i was instantly hooked. I have watched this movie hundreds of times easy. Such a great kid's movie and eventhough I am in my 30's, I still love it as much as i did when i was 12. This movie inspired me to track down and purchase an actual Cloak & Dagger stand-up arcade game..i even had the opportunity to visit Atari in CA and see one of the very few original standups that was called Agent X before Atari renamed the game to Cloak & Dagger..well, I am totally rambling now. I dont know how much i would enjoy this movie as an adult had i not seen it a million times as a kid, but this movie is GREAT for kids and kids at heart. ( I hope the DVD atleast has the original movie trailer on it).

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.

"Cloak & Dagger" is one of those movies that was clearly made for the sole purpose of the audience to have fun. And on that level, it succeeds perfectly. This is a great movie to put in one night when you just want to relax, have fun, and not have to use your brain to understand the movie.
Henry Thomas plays Davey Osborne, a kid whose whole world revolves around his spy toys. He even has an imaginary friend, super-spy Jack Flack, who assists Davey on all of his assignments. One day, Davey witnesses a real murder. Before the victim dies, he hands Davey a Cloak & Dagger video game and gives him a number that Davey believes to be the score to beat to find out its secret. Unfortunately for Davey, the body is gone by the time he gets back with the cops and no one believes him. Soon, Davey is playing spy for real with the help of his imaginary friend, Jack.
The movie is fairly predictable, but is fun and engaging nonetheless. The villians are over the top, the imaginary friend is full of himself, and the heroes are kids who have no one else to turn to.
As I said before, this is a great movie to plug in after a hard day at work when all you want to do is unwind.

Atari in Cloak an Dagger
No he identified it correctly. The game console in Davys room was an Atari 5200. The computer at Morris' store was an Atari 800 but Morris also had a 5200 console on the desk as well which is why he could run Davys cartridge and play the game.
