Plot
An exciting opening sequence introduces all the protagonists, in their everyday life, while the bad guys, criminals, are being chased by cops. The town is picturesque. Not much happens, there, we learn, until today. The Goonies follows the ultimate adventure film recipe, but targets children and teenagers, which doesn’t mean adults won’t have the time of their lives.
The whole cast acts big, which makes the film more surreal than it already is. This picture comes from the minds of Richard Donner, Steven Spielberg and Chris Colombus. It is, basically, one of the best movies ever made. It’s politically incorrect. It’s larger than life. It alternates between action, adventure, thriller, comedy and horror, which creates an incessant rollercoaster ride.
The underground labyrinth is unreal. It doesn’t make sense, architecturally speaking, but we accept it because the concept is amazing. In fact, “amazing” is an understatement. This is Indiana Jones for kids. The set pieces are magnificent and extremely effective. The score is very melodic, catchy, omnipresent, and it takes us by the hand. You’ll probably want to revisit this one repeatedly!
