    From the imagination of Steven Spielberg, The Goonies plunges a band of small heroes into a swashbuckling, surprise-around-every-corner quest beyond their wildest dreams!

    Following a mysterious treasure map into a spectacular underground realm of twisting passages, outrageous booby-traps and a long-lost pirate ship full of golden doubloons, the kids race to stay one step ahead of a family of bumbling bad guys… and a mild-mannered monster with a face only a mother could love. A family adventure classic from start to buccaneering finish, The Goonies is a cinematic treasure trove of breathtaking action, dazzling effects and shiver-yer-timbers thrills!

    8 / 10
    A fantastic film, a childhood classic. Basically Mikey and his gang of Goonies set out on a pirate treasure hunt, chased by a family of criminals who want the treasure for themselves.

    The visuals were stunning. The movie is quite old but apart from the bad hairstyles, you wouldnt have been able to tell this movie is 18 years old. The sound is a superb DD 5.1 which restores the great sound well.

    Superb extras including a fantastic video commentary from the original Goonies who have now grown up.

    An excellent dvd package. A real must see for everyone
