Packed with action, adventure, and alien transformations, BEN 10: ALIEN FORCE beckons to science fiction-loving tweens, particularly boys. The combination of an ever-changing cast of colorful villains and the underlying mystery of Ben's grandfather's disappearance is sure to keep viewers guessing -- and coming back for more.

If your tweens have followed Ben's previous adventures, they're likely to notice that he's grown up quite a bit for this series. At 15, he's more reflective and thoughtful than before, which allows him to team up with a former enemy for the greater good. He's also determined to take the lead in battling the aliens -- not for glory, but because his grandfather is depending on him. At the same time, he's often reminded that there's no substitute for teamwork. All of this offers some worthwhile lessons for the tween boys that the show aims to entertain. But be smart about letting kids tune in, since the show does feature a lot of violence (which occasionally results in death), and some of the aliens and monsters may scare little ones.
