Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Of the three shorts included in this "movie," the first two ("Trials of Furno" and "Core Crisis") have very little driving them besides robots looking for an excuse to fight each other. The rookies are thrown into battle and asked to show what they're made of, and the flimsy plot thread about young heroes proving themselves in battle leave a lot to be desired.

The final episode, "The Enemy Within," is more interesting. Stormer is infected by nano-bots, which turns him against his crew, and the bad guys are controlled by an old aquaintance of Stormer's who betrayed him on his own rookie mission many years before. Still, unless you have the stomach for crazy, weapon-toting Legos with zero peace-keeping skills, there are much better adventure movies out there.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
