    The new live action movie just aired Thought I'd set up a talkback.

    It was okay. I liked this better than Race Aganst Time, still the ending seemed rushed. I hope this movie is non-cannon, there are already alot of continunity problems with the series already.

    My gripes:

    Spoilers from this point on, Highlight to view-

    - Elena, where to begin... First off I don't like her. I just don't. The movie could have gone along without her. The reason she was included was to be Ben's love intrest (did the writers forget about Julie or something?).

    -When does this movie take place? Since when did Kevin get his powers back? Shouln't he still have those Metamorpho-like powers? And since when does he have a job at an auto body shop (fitting job, though).

    -Since when does Ben drive. Last I checked he was fifteen. Again, when does this movie take place?

    -Another new alien. Named Nanomech. Like Eon, from the first, this is probably his only apperence.

    -We could have gotten more of a back story for the Queen, like where she and the chips came from or how she got inside Elena's dad in the first place.

    -Elena's part of the team now?! Won't supprise me if we never see or hear from her ever again.


    -End Spoilers-

    Seriously, any more Ben 10 movies should be animated, like Secret of the Omnitrix.

    Meh. Better than Race Against Time, but definitely not all that great. Main problem being Gwen. Seriously, they just can't get her character right in these movies. In the first one I found her 'sibling-like' rivalry with Ben incredibly forced. Now, she's just too callous (when would Gwen ever suggest the only solution being to kill someone?).

    Hope to see more of Nanomech, but I doubt it'll happen (plus, like Honey-Flash said, Alien Force has been giving this series' continuity enough trouble as it is :lol ). Also, we can't forget this series' penchant for introducing aliens only for them to never be seen again.

    I haven't seen Ben 10: Alien Swarm, but judging by the previews and stuff it looks much better that the other movie (God that one sucked).

    -Answers to spoilers-


    -I think this movie takes some place after "Ben 10:Alien Force" and before "Ben 10:Evolutions" (The next series).

    -In Evolution, Ben will be 16, and they mentioned that his Birthday was in a few months (in the movie), so he's not that far away from legaly driving.

    -Nanomech is supposed to be one of Ben's aliens in Evolutions.

    Thats all I know. ;)

    They effed up a RX-8 :yuck  and when in the hell did a Wankel start sounding that way? :banghead: 

    At least they put it out of its misery. That hood scoop looked more like a bird house :lol 

    I find it funny that they couldn't find competent teenage actors for this flick. Check out the actress who played Elena's real age. The plot was rushed especially at the end, and most of them were out of character (adding that most couldn't act eitherways).

    compared to the last RA movie, it was better.
    but yeah, acting was meh...maybe I should go & try out. I'm not any better, but why the hell not?
    I could be Ben's Smart ass Asian friend that takes the watch from him & tries to rule the world only to be taken out by a Greymatter? I think that's it...the little smart alien..

    Well, I loved the movie. Wish it was a little longer. Like an hour and a half longer. But my only problem was that Gwen acted more loving to Kevin than she does in the series. The kiss? I don't remember them kissing in the show.

    I thought it was okay, and I'm not just saying that because I actually worked on this film playing background as a zombie factory worker.

    But it was a kids movie, so I didn't expect much anyway.

    I did check her out. She's super hot. And even hotter in person, I must say. It was difficult to not stare at her when we were shooting the film, especially with the way she filled out those pleather pants.

    But I do commend the casting director for finding actors who actually resembled their animated counterparts, even if their performances weren't exactly award-winning. They could've just ignored the animated characters' looks completely and cast actors with more notariety.

    That's probably the best thing this movie did. Ben LOOKED like Ben. Kevin LOOKED like Kevin.

    They did a really good job on the likeness.

    The RX-8 didn't need the help,
    Kevin prolly took the rotary out and put a real american V8 in it.

    The hood is an easy fix...but oh well the Mustang is regaining her superiorty
