Perhaps the greatest film of our generation

This isn't just a beautifully crafted Ben 10 film. Or an outstanding Ben 10 portrait, for that matter. An amazing period piece. A character study. A lesson in filmmaking and an inspiration to generations of actors, directors, screenwriters and producers. For me, this is more: this is the definitive film. 5 stars out of 5. Ben 10: Alien swarm is likely appropriate for all ages in terms of content, however, I fear that younger people might not fully appreciate the film's genius, and cinematography. For this reason I have ticked the "9 and up" box, I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on the epic film experience that is Ben 10: Alien swarm.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 9+

It's an OK movie.

This Ben 10 film is just OK.I like most of the Ben 10 movies though.I like the action and adventure in this film,but some parts are creepy and not for little kids.So I say this movie is the best for ages 9 up.I really agree with CSM on this one.
