4K UHD Review - D.A.R.Y.L.


In many ways, Steven Spielberg dominated the entertainment industry in the 1980s. He made blockbusters that delighted all audiences, and even scored a global sensation with the release of "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," scoring huge box office and launching a wave of similar productions, with other producers trying to capture the hearts and minds of kid audiences flocking to multiplexes. 1985's "D.A.R.Y.L." isn't a Spielberg endeavor, but it's certainly taking advantage of the mogul's moviemaking triumphs, presenting a tale of a young robotic boy and his quest to live a regular life with his adoptive family and mischievous best friend. Director Simon Wincer ("Free Willy," "Quigley Down Under") hopes to blend danger and heartwarming relationships with the effort, which is pushed along by entertaining reveals in its first hour, getting to understand the child's computer abilities and his interactions with human caretakers. "D.A.R.Y.L." stumbles some in its last act, which turns the feature into a more action-packed offering, but the gentleness of the picture supports an enjoyable viewing experience.
