        The Flight of the Navigator is a 1986 science fiction film directed by Randal Kleiser. The movie is about a 12-year old boy named David Freeman who fell into a ditch. When David woke up, he found out that eight years have passed since he fell. The weird thing is that he did not age. They all soon found out that David was abducted by an alien spacecraft and taken to another planet called Phaelon. David has two choices – stay in 1986 or go back to 1978 and risk his life in the time travel.

I have always been fascinated by time travel. That’s one of the reasons why I like this movie. I found it funny when David thought that the band Twisted Sisters were women and when he didn’t know anything about new wave music.
In this movie, you will certainly hate the NASA scientist. He promised David to stay at their facility for 48 hours but soon he planned to make him stay longer. It seems like they will treat David like a lab rat for the rest of his life.

Everybody will be satisfied with the ending. David got back to 1978 safely just in time to celebrate the Fourth of July. I will rate this movie 8.8.
