Using Imagination
28 January 2017 | by sol-See all my reviews

Abducted by aliens who announce an intention to keep them as pets, two teenagers learn that the aliens might actually have other plans for them in this brisk adventure thriller from Canada. The film feels a little too cute at times (aliens that look like fuzzy bears) but there are several genuinely unsettling moments along the way, particularly a scene in which the boys wake up in what seems to be their bedroom, only without glass in the windows... or any way to get out. As it turns out, on the alien spaceship everything runs on imagination ("just think of what you want to wear") in a creative twist. Curiously enough, there is also an abducted cat burglar spends most of his time locked in a jail cell, unable to suspend disbelief and realise that he is just imagining the cell as the only place that he rationally thinks he can possibly be! Further fascinating ideas come from the aliens comparing pet human ownership to dog ownership and using the power from black holes to travel faster through space. The supporting characters are far less engaging than the teenagers though; Klea Scott plays a fellow young abductee whose only real purpose is to spell out for our protagonists how the imagination concept works, while Les Lye as the burglar is fairly one-note. This may not be high class science fiction entertainment, but is still remarkably well assembled for a low budget production. The special effects are not half-bad, the ideas at hand are often thought-provoking and two main characters are very likable as they find out in very unusual terms just how useful a good imagination can be.
