A great little movie
on 7 December 2009
I thought that this was a great little movie; in line with the Ben 10 franchise and not too patronising. For an adult viewer the plot may seem cliched and the somewhat obvious but for the pre-teen audience it is pitched perfectly. What I have always liked about Ben 10 is that it doesn't patronise the kids and neither does this film. The sets and effects look good given the limited budget, the main characters sit well with their animated counter parts although Kevin Levin came across as more likeable than Gwen. The length was perfect at 70 minutes and there was sufficient action without it being over the top. We get to see Ben as Big Chill and Humungasaur as well as new alien - Nanomech, although I think Kevin's green Dodge 10 was perhaps the real star. The violence in the film was modest and cartoony and we rarely see a punch connect for example, it reminded me of episodes of the A-team where no one ever gets hurt. This is no Oscar winning but it is a solid kids film that fans of Ben 10 are sure to be thrilled at.
