My God, this is lame!
3 June 1999 | by (Sacramento, Ca) – See all my reviews

The makers of this film should be ashamed of themselves! These really stupid kids are being hunted by a slow, noisy and easily confused robot who can't make a single decision with out calling Roddy McDowall on a palm pilot. Fortunately for the kids, one of them has been taken over by an alien sent to help them. Unfortunately, it doesn't do anything. This movie is filled with bad dialogue, dumb characters, VERY oddly placed items (like a rifle on the ground outside a Police station). Like good special effects? Don't look here.
