MBDA's tests have also helped to debunk the science-fiction idea that reflective armour would defend against laser weapons. They found that any dust on the mirrored surface would get burned in, and lead to the destruction of the target even faster than with a non-reflective surface. ... al-1.17613

also, even if you had a perfectly clean mirror, no mirror is 100% effective, and at those power levels the beams in the video have the bit of bleed-through would melt/blast the mirror material and you are where you started, except your ship cost a ton more due to the mirror treatment.

also, in Freespace those arent lasers, they are particle beam weapons.
