Our Score
When two boys, Max and Pete, find a small alien (the glitterball) that has become separated from its mother ship, they try to help it get home. You might get the feeling this children's film just took the plot of ET the Extra-Terrestrial and made a good low-budget version, until you notice that it came out five years before the Spielberg classic.


Two teenagers help return an alien with special powers to its spaceship, while pursued by the army and a criminal. Sci-fi adventure, starring Ben Buckton and Keith Jayne.
