Kids Movie.
16 September 2019 | by Nemesis42See all my reviews

It's definitely not a 10/10 - those reviews must be Chinese people here just to support their country's endeavors.

As a kids film it's not too bad. Simplistic script and bland dialogue feels like it was written by children, and the music is sappy. The sound design is lacking and the sound mix is flat. There are very few moments of good acting. The CGI is not too bad.

What would help the story to bring it into adult-land would be a depiction of the wider global situation and more on the aliens intent, more artistic direction and of course a mature script.
