The movie is about a Vegas taxi cab driver (Rock) who doesn’t believe in UFOs. He randomly picks up 2 teenagers who turn out to be aliens from outer space. Their mission: To save their planet and at the same time save planet earth. The only obstacle? They are running away from assassins and from unknowing humans trying to stop their mission.
Overall, it is a nice family movie, with enough action and laughter as well as with an overtone of family goodness. The special effects are average and the action scenes do not disappoint. The actors hit it right on the spot with the children first sounding like an electronic dictionary, but as they have more interaction with humans, they manage to act like normal teenagers. Dwayne added the right touch of his tough guy action star persona with the "I have my principles and I’ll keep you kids safe" act.
This qualifies as one of the movies I enjoyed this month. It is a movie to watch if you want to keep your date light or if you have a family movie day planned.
