Very entertaining and informative
I took my kids, 4M,6M,and 9F to this.
They all enjoyed it as I did. Lots of things get blown up. Cool! I did have to explain that there was no one in those vehicles.
There are invigorating flight sequences and the narrator explains things as he goes along. The visuals lift it from a 5 to a 7.
There are continuity issues as another commenter has noted, making it difficult to follow for anyone with any orientation. This is often a problem with films. It is necessary to let go of those issues to enjoy the film.
It was difficult to keep track of the story. A more direct story line would be appreciated.
Well worth it!
