Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reboot of the animated Ben 10 series contains the fantasy violence the franchise is known for, which makes it too intense for very young viewers. On the positive side, it also contains positive themes such as family, teamwork, and asking for help when you need it. There's some bickering between the two younger characters, but they are also very close. The series continues to inspire lots of games and toys.
Is It Any Good?
This energetic cartoon still delivers on the exciting, evil-fighting action the original is known for. Ben looks and acts younger than in the original series, but he's still committed to using his powers for good. He also continues to rely on his cousin and his grandfather for help when he needs it.
It's fun and, thanks to images of smartphones and tablets, a bit more updated. But grown-up Ben 10 fans may find themselves feeling nostalgic for the original cartoon version, which is more anime-like in style. Nonetheless, the stories are still entertaining, and young tweens who like aliens and science fiction-type shows will find it appealing.
Did we miss something on diversity?
