Kids love space. Kids love robots. Therefore, they would love this movie, right? Well... if you want my opinion, I kinda see this as a TOTAL mixed bag.
After the first few minutes, this movie is nothing but mean-spirited, from Max being bullied by Kevin, to Andie harshly chewing out the newcomers for screwing up a simulation (which I can't help but think Armageddon recycled). Yeah, I know, they would happen in a real life space camp, but still!
And then the fun starts, and it's just a typical sci-fi family fare. Although, to be honest, I only watched because of Family Guy showing Jinx the Robot in the episode where Brian was coerced into living with then-girlfriend Jillian (don't judge me).
And another thing, this was released shortly after the demise of the Challenger, so would you watch this either way? Maybe, since there are a few good actors in this.
My rating: 5/10
