Plot; (from back cover) After a 16-year absence, Claire and Matt Thompson are reintroduced to The Jensen Project – a secret community of geniuses conducting advanced underground research to solve the world’s most difficult problems.  But their return is far from a social visit.  The former scientist, accompanied by their tech-minded teenage son Brody, are thrust into a frantic pursuit to keep a potentially dangerous technology from falling into the wrong hands.

This movie was another wonderful Wal-Mart movie. Although I thought that the bad guy was inconsistent (hence the 8 rating instead of a ten) this movie was good overall.  For those who like Sci-Fi and futuristic movies, the technology and visual effects in this movie are very good and get you thinking about the possibilities.  For those who don’t like those genres (which includes some of my family), there wasn’t anything real strange or scary in it.  My whole family enjoyed it, including Rebekkah, who is very easily scared.
One of the best things about this movie was that the family has issues, but like with all Wal-Mart films, works together in the end.  All the clothing was modest, no bad language, and only a hint of romance. It is just a clean, fun, family adventure movie.  If Wal-Mart keeps this up, they will be the next Disney.

So, for the bad things.  There wasn’t rally anything “bad” about this movie.  There is a little romance between Brody and a girl but they don’t even kiss, and I thought they made fun of the possibility more than anything else.  Brody is disobedient a few times in the movie.  I thought, though, that it helped convey the theme: that not talking together as a family causes issues.  Brody is disobedient because his parents aren’t listing to him or keeping him in the loop.

All in all, another great family movie that you can get at Wal-Mart for only $13.00.
