The premise of Mac Campbell's character is based on a neglected child who has lost his mother recently. His dad (Bruce Greenwood) has unintentionally ignored his son by burying himself in work after his wife died and has decided to make it up to Mac by taking him to a theme park. The boy is devastated to find out that his dad's plans have changed as a result of an emergency trip to Canada. Mac, played by Daniel Magder plays an angry, somewhat stoic, curious, brave yet emotional young man. I believe he pulled it off beautifully. In fact he adds a touch of humor to his character in a non funny situation when speaking under his breath about Pawnee, his new found friend. My kids have seen him in "Life with Derek" as "Edwin" and he portrays a totally different type of character showing his versatility. (They've coaxed me into watching a few episodes).
Mee-She The Water Giant is great for kids but I think it could have been simplified for the benefit of the younger viewers. That being said, I recommend renting it or purchasing the film. I purchased the film and my kids have seen it many times.
