Ben 10 Alien Swarm

Based on the cartoon series from the Cartoon Network, fans of the series can now experience the second live action interpretation of Ben 10. Interestingly enough, our hero Ben (Ryan Kelley) is slightly older and wiser than the original 10-year old and Ben is now a teenager, obviously an attempt to keep the market interesting for an ageing fan base.

The story once again revolves around Ben, the main protagonist of the series who once stumbled upon a powerful alien artefact known as the Omnitrix which allows him to transform into a variety of different alien creatures. If you're anywhere under 15, you would think is damn cool and hell, even for me, it's cool.

Of course with power, comes responsibility and Ben is part of an organisation called "The Plumbers" who are a mysterious organisation that attempts to keep aliens from causing grief to the denizens of planet Earth. Thankfully Ben is joined by Gwen (Galadriel Stineman) and his grandpa Max (Barry Corbin) who have been Earth's unofficial protectors.

Of course things go astray when a girl named Elena (Alyssa Diaz) comes into the picture who believes that Ben may be able to help find her missing father. Unfortunately her father Validus (Herbert Siguenza) seems to have some bad blood
with Ben's grandfather Max. Things begin to fall apart when an alien queen begins turning humans into her drones and once again, The Plumbers are called into action.

If you're a fan of the series, you'll definitely be in Ben 10 heaven and the movie really transcends the world of cartoon to live action quite well. Sure, the special  effects may be a little cheesy but it actually suits the story. With some decent acting by all involved, this is the perfect movie for teenagers that will give male viewers something more than just Twilight to cringe about.
