Goofs

Nukie is shown to be able to turn into a ball of light and fly around at will. If he is so desperate to find his brother, why does he walk around constantly rather than simply flying to him? This is compounded by the fact that Miko, who has the exact same ability, never uses it to escape his captors at the Space Foundation. See more »

Must be seen to be believed.
1 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is quite possibly the worst movie ever made. I still cannot believe how horrible this movie was. The acting was terrible. The sound was painful. The camera never moved. This film is the exact opposite of everything a good movie is. Nukie is painful enough to make small children cower in the corner for days and make grown men weep. I watched this film with my little brother and we had to stop 30 minutes in because he was literally getting sick to his stomach. By all means, if you watch this movie do NOT watch it alone or in the vicinity of sharp objects. This film is only for those who are brave of heart. Therapy may be needed after viewing.
