wrong message

The video gamer who assumes the smart kid will do his homework/project pulls through so save the day after showing no responsibility or care until he's forced to. Wrong message. The animation background was poor quality. Not sure how exactly the babies were supposed to get their powers back to save the day.

Fun night in

Good movie that is fun to watch. Family-friendly all the way, lots of humor, and some light fighting that is never too scary. There is nothing about this movie that is bad, there just aren't enough great things to be a five-star movie. We had a great time watching it. You could complain about the lack of originality, the amount of coincidences that hold the plot together, or the over-reliance on cute babies. But that would deny the excellent Friday night "in" we had.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (9 ):

The plot, action, and animation are all engaging, but what really sets this film apart is how much fun the voice actors seem to be having with their many one-liners. Union is especially amusing as General Blazerhatch, the power-hungry commander of the special task force assigned with capturing the errant aliens. Blazerhatch has been gifted with a stockpile of unreasonable demands (like being handed a clipboard every two minutes), a blustery cluelessness, and laughable expressions of wonder like "poop just got real" or putting out an APB on "infants of mass destruction."

In addition to the entertaining characters, the film has a good soundtrack and some fun asides, like that the space babies can only be soothed by the music of "national treasure" Lionel Richie. Though Fearless starts off with an action scene that's a little disorienting until all the characters are properly introduced, the story really clicks about 30 minutes in, when the two teens take off on the run from Dr. Arcannis. The deepening relationship between Reid and Melanie, their care for the babies, and the lessons they learn about themselves on their adventure provide a sweet storyline to balance out the action.
