“Make it scratch it’s balls”
Sometimes interesting and with some great acting, this is one of those small movies that rises a little above the rest although it’s audience is definately teenagers.
Budget is well used and the effects are excellent, I didnt have any problem with the believable quality of the robots or the actors eye-lines. This is something I have a problem with in most large cgi movies but here there was no such continuity mistake so well done to them for that at least.
Story was ok, not special, script was good and even verging on a little violent although I think the balance was probably right for kids and good for adults. Acting from everyone, especially Ben and Milo, was good, with ten year old Milo being excellent.
There’s more than a film-kick-starting-a-TV-series feel going on and think it’s not going to be seen as a very repeatable movie but good effort.
One for kids but not grown ups although they wont have difficulty watching.
Watch if on TV?
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Snoggish. Maybe more the peck on the cheek type.
