Sequel Series Takes Darker Tone
Ben 10 Alien Force is the sequel series to fan favorite Ben 10. It is okay for a sequel series and features all the characters four years older. This show is much more mature than the previous series. Violence is still over-the-top and similar to that of comic book violence, but there are more deaths in this series and unlike the original series, this includes the good guys as well. The series takes on a more serious dark tone and this series is much less colorful than the original. Fistfights, car chases, shootouts, assassins, bounty hunters, and much more menacing villains are featured along with many family issues involving Gwen and her new found super powers and many story lines revolve around bullies and people having problems with family. Insults such as idiot, moron, stupid, dumb, heck, darn/dang, and occasionally crap are sometimes used. Occasionally background characters might smoke or drink. Overall, this is all right for kids 9+ who can handle the higher level of violence and more frequent deaths.
