This was a so so movie. One of my kids loved it while the other did not. The story lacks substance as the main character is so dimwitted its not even funny. His little (older) brother, the smart one redeems the movie with his sensibility. There were parts of the move that were truly touching while others were just dry. There were no twist as all characters were predictable, even the villain. So the plot was very weak and done several movies before this one.
I have two kids and love kids movies. It does not stack up well against "Despicable me", "Mega Mind", 'Nemo', even 'Wreck it Ralph' I have seen better movies in years gone by like 'Mulan' Shrek, 'Ice Age' even Monsters Inc. This was disappointing. My kids are little but smart and want something that challenges their imagination. This was just stupid humor. (little on the humor)
Sad thing is I love the actual Actors. Brendan Fraser, Jesica Alba, William Shattner and George Lopez.Hope they can make a better movie.

Light-hearted story, plenty of action but nothing too scary for my 5 y.o.

I took my son to see it for his 10th Birthday. That was the funnest animated movie we have seen togather! Star studded voice over! A must see!

I was not looking forward to going to see this movie because I am not a huge fan of sci-fi regardless of the fact if it is a cartoon, drama, etc. My 6 year old insisted that we go and I gave in. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. This was a movie that not only he enjoyed but I did as well. I definitely recommend it!

I found everything about this movie to be completely predictable and the previews had already given away every funny part of the movie. The plot, characters, and world were all incredibly shallow. Give me Despicable Me or Monsters Inc. any day. Still, it was a clean movie safe for the family and perhaps kids might find it more entertaining than I did.
