Quotes

Grandpa Max: Ben stay away from her. The Valadus family is blacklisted. There can be no interaction between them and the plumbers.
Ben Tennyson: That's the way you see it. The way I see it. A friend is in trouble. And she's the best link we had to those chips and the freak who's controlling them. A whole lot more people could end up in trouble besides Elena and her father.

There are worse ways to kill 90 minutes
29 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

A very effective "B" movie, way better in every possible way than the previous live action "Ben 10." The directing, acting, production design and visual effects are considerably improved this time around, very nice indeed for a low-budget cable film. Clearly, the filmmakers actually tried to make a decent film (take note, Sy-Fy). Sure, the script is pretty much by-the-numbers and contains no surprises, but you can't really expect top-notch screen writing in a picture like this.

If this turns out to be a ratings success, I wouldn't mind seeing live action versions of some of Cartoon Networks other series, such as "The Secret Saturdays."
