One of those stupid, after-school-special type of films.
2 October 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

Right from the opening, animated, credits sequence, you know this is going to be one of those mind-numbingly stupid films. Plot about a kid who controls a lot of junk with a remote control is uninspired. Sure, it's meant for kids, but it's way too dumb for almost anyone. My best advice is to skip it.
