Cheap special effects, a dumb script, terrible acting, anonymous actors - what more can I say? The kids liked this, but only the younger ones. The basic concept of this is good: a pair of kids find a miniaturized alien city and dislodge its power supply meaning that the city will soon grow to its correct size, with cataclysmic results. Can the kids find the lost power source in time? Complicating matters, there are a group of sinister aliens chasing them. These nasty aliens want the tiny city for their own nefarious purposes. Fortunately for the kids, these aliens seem to be unable to run and so the kids have that advantage. Also, all the adults in this seem to be fairly dumb, so that's another plus for the kids. Everyone seems to be shouting at one another which, I guess, is in lieu of being able to act. Like I said, there is an interesting idea at the heart of this and also the potential for a good movie. Unfortunately, this misses the mark by a mile. OK for undemanding kids. Parental guidance not required - save yourself the pain.
