I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with kids. The "hero" is a thoroughly unpleasant, arrogant, nasty little know-it-all who deserves every bad thing that happens to him. He steals, assaults a police office, shows thinly concealed contempt for those who love him and a sneering superiority to any authority figure. Peers are fine and grown-ups are easily manipulated dolts. Special effects are good and acting is better than average for a kid film, but what a message! It's so wrongheaded, you'll feel like throwing something at the screen. Read other "positive" review and couldn't believe we saw the same film. Watch this and regret it...I know I did.
