Originality isn't always a good thing
An alien...who skateboards?! Whoo, how highly original. This movie does ooze with originality, despite that every part of the movie is absolutely dreadful. The plot is ridiculous, the acting is horrible, the writing is embarrassingly bad, and the special effects were not so special. This movie is just dreadful in every way, so you masochists out there might want to give this a try.
A group of kids is putting together a sports team, and for help they go to Hedion (C Thomas Howell), a sports trainer. Hedion has a skater kid of his own that wants to join the team, but he's no normal kid. He's a blue alien, so none of them like him, but they bond after about 3 seconds of corny dialogue and everything is good once again. Some bad guy aliens are after Zolar, and it's up to his amazing skills to "Pwn" them to death.
This movie isn't charming, and it tries it's hardest to be. It wants to have a heart, but it's material is so ridiculously brainless, that a heart is lost somewhere in the stupidity. The plot progresses very quickly, and yet it seems too long. It's because of the poor writing for the characters. One character has a crush on Zolar, which is strange, and kind of disgusting. And to make an boring corny kids movie worse, they add some awful effects that are eye poppingly bad.
The Kid's WB is no longer around, and there might be a reason behind that fact. This Kid's WB produced movie is just awful. Only watch it if you have a love for bad cinema.
My rating: BOMB out of ****. 95 mins. Not rated
