... Hi. Do you get bored just sitting in this box?... I can't believe that I'm standing here talking to a BALL. No offense.
[the other Solarbabies come in]
So, this "Bodhi"... We still haven't figured out what it is.

This one seems to be everyones pet hate for some reason, but it really doesn't deserve all that bad press. It is a more than decent sci-fi movie in Road Warrior territory. The rulers use water shortage to upress the masses but the magic ball Bodai and The Solarbabies on rollerskates take up the fight. Nice work by Lucas Haas and the beautiful Jamie Gertz, a highly underrated actress. High budget insures high productionvalues, this film both look and sounds good. 7/10
