Ben 10: Alien Swarm Variety Review

By 2009/11/22December 27th, 2018Ben 10: Alien Swarm

By Brian Lowry:

“Filmed in Atlanta by Trouper Prods. and Cartoon Network Studios. Executive producer, Alex Winter; producer, Gideon Amir; director, Winter; writers, John Turman, James Krieg.

Further milking and aging the ‘Ben 10’ franchise into teen territory, Cartoon Network has churned out a second live-action movie infused with a slick comicbook feel while at times feeling more like product placement for cars and motorcycles than a movie. Still, ‘Ben 10: Alien Swarm’ has upped ‘Ben 10’s’ game in terms of visual effects, and it races along briskly enough that it should connect with the older boy/younger-teen audience that the Turner-owned channel is cultivating (actually, pandering to) with a slew of live-action reality shows.”
