Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

UFO is a strictly by-the-book story of young romance. The lovers, coping with the girl's biased family, become closer at least in part due to the disapproval. She's the girl who notices the special lower-class boy, while Ese embodies in every expectable way the decent guy suffering from torn loyalty, partly to the family that rescued him when he was a toddling street orphan, and now to the classy girl who sees the best in him. Humming in the background are partying and rap fests, featuring uninspiring lyrics including, "If you forget me, one day a black train will be my hope in my hopeless times."

The script and direction don't do much to involve us in these lives, so their exploits and outcomes don't feel urgent or absorbing. Note that if every single reference to UFOs were removed, nothing important would be subtracted from this story.

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.
