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.

Definitely better than Race against Time
28 November 2009 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I was one of the few who enjoyed the cheesy first live-action movie of Ben 10, Race against Time. 2 years later, they produced another live-action movie, Alien Swarm. Alien Swarm is quite different from the first movie. This is more serious, has realistic special effects and better acting. I admit that in the first movie, the acting is horrible. Now, Alien Swarm is the more serious adaptation of the popular cartoon Ben 10.

The story: It is fairly simple so that kids will enjoy it and not care about anything else. Everything in the movie is quite good compared to the first one. The only thing disappointing is the lack of aliens. Even the first one which has a low budget can afford to have four aliens. This has a higher budget which is why the special effects look more realistic.

Overall: It is a fun ride. With a brisk pace and action, this is quite entertaining and enjoyable. Its' short runtime makes the movie faster pace. I am not a Ben 10 fan but I hope there will be another movie. This is so much better than the first one.
