A high concept body swap movie that blurs lines between reality, fantasy, and dreams, this is an ambitious slice of children's science fiction. And for the most part, Jett Jackson: The Movie holds it together. Lead actor Young plays the dual roles of serious agent and conflicted actor confidently and differently enough that we keep up with who's who. Sometimes extra curveballs fly in, such as a dimension jump section in which the action delves into a third wacky world that's black and white and has a giant eye in the sky. It stirs the pot of confusion and turns up the heat, but despite being sometimes dizzying, it's always brimming with good energy and is heaps of fun.

Add to that a sweet love story that bubbles under and concludes triumphantly, and a snarling villain in Ironside's Dr. Kragg, and Jett Jackson: The Movie delivers a whole load of family-friendly fun. The diverse casting is a huge positive, too. Coming after 47 episodes of the TV series, all directed by the movie's helmsman Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum / Free Guy), the world of Jett Jackson comes fully formed. Even if you've not seen the show, the actors and crew present the action so confidently you'll never feel lost despite its twists and turns.
