My brief review of the film
22 July 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

An exceedingly ordinary family movie, filmed with the younger generation especially in mind, the premise of a boy genius works out to be amusing at times but drone at other times, and the film makes overall nothing more than satisfactory viewing. The acting, the technical side of the film and the screenplay are all quite average in quality - although, it might be of concern to some that the science behind it all is a little bit off. Not really a film for adults, perhaps the younger viewers will be able to take something out of it, but either way, it does not come highly recommended as anything better than just 'okay'.
