A fun special effects movie
21 June 2001 | by (Independence, MO) – See all my reviews

This movie makes no pretensions--it's a simple, fun summer movie full of special effects. The cast handles its duties in a professional manner, and there are enough laughs to keep you entertained throughout the movie.
