“Ben 10 vs. The Universe: The Movie” Review by Suzanne 10/20/20

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.

“Ben 10” is a long-running animated TV series. There have been 5 different TV series and 5 movies. This is the latest film. Ben is a kid who acquires a wristwatch known as the Omnitrix. It uses alien dna to transform him into different creatures with armor, powers etc. He uses it to fight villains and defend his family.  It’s not just an action show, though. Ben learns many things, with the help of his uncle, grandfather and cousin – it’s educational and family-oriented; it’s won many awards.

In the movie, Ben goes to space to thwart a meteor and ends up being taken by aliens. He has a few adventures. Meanwhile, an evil alien is trying to take over the earth.  Ben is bored and impatient at the beginning of the movie, but he gets more adventure than he bargained for and learns a few things along the way.

While it’s definitely a kid’s show, it has a lot of humor in it. Adults might enjoy that – especially those who like cartoons. Of course, there are also many “Ben 10” action figures and other toys that tie in with the show and movie.

This would make a great gift for any child. Also, you don’t have to have seen any of the previous shows or movies to know what’s going on. It’s pretty easy to pick up and start watching.  The DVD doesn’t have a lot of features. It shows some of the scenes before they were colored and finished, and it it has some static artwork.
