Clever storytelling, impressive special effects, and solid performances by a capable cast make this action-adventure movie a standout for tween viewers. Capitalizing on Jett Jackson's popularity as a television series on the Disney Channel (1998-2001), Jett Jackson, The Movie continues the saga of our namesake (Lee Thompson Young). The suburban teen is contending with his celebrity status as the star of an action series called Silverstone, while struggling with his offstage persona as a regular coming-of-age kid. Things get murkier when a bizarre accident activates one of the show's props, a time-space continuum. Hit with an electrical jolt, Jett is thrust into another dimension, trading bodies with his alter ego, Silverstone. There are villains to conquer--namely Dr. Kragg and his sinister plan to raze the world--and hearts to win--primarily, Jett's faithful friend Kayla (Kerry Duff). For Jett it's all in a day's work, even under threat of an expiring contract. Disney delivers a production that's wholesome without being condescending, proving it knows its target audience. Young and Duff are exceptionally good, and the martial arts sequences sizzle. (Ages 10 to 15) --Lynn Gibson

I bought this movie to have something to remember Lee Thompson Young by and it brought back all kinds of memories. Even though I'm in my late 20s, I'm still captivated by this movie.

All the DCOMs during the late 1990s-early 2000s were great but I'm hard pressed to think of a movie that was better than this one. The movie was well written, well made, acted and presented the universal themes DCOMs movies of this era are known for. Jett Jackson the TV show was amazing in its own right and the movie was the perfect storyline. The cinematography and music in some scenes were amazing.

Starring the late but talented Lee Thompson Young in his final performance as Jett Jackson, The Jett Jackson Movie sets the stage for Silverstone's final task in saving his mentor and defeating his toughest opponent. As Jett, he reveals his feelings for Kayla and makes his choice in not following the crew back to L.A. All in all, it is a pretty good ending to a great Disney production from their glory days of T.V. productions. I am incredibly thankful Disney chose to release all their Disney Channel Original Movies to Amazon. If only they would send them to Itunes as well.

I watch Jett Jackson the Movie over and over and over again. It is truly on of my favorite movies. The acting is great along with the drama, the comedy, and the romance. They should make a sequel to this movie!

This my first time seeing this movie since it first came out. But I was a little disappointed b/c I remember the preview of the movie, and I thought it was going to be good. But I'm just glad I have something to remember Lee Thompson Young.

"Jett Jackson The Movie" is like a cross between "The Parent Trap" and "Pleasantville". Filmed near the end of the Disney Channel series "The Famous Jett Jackson", it expands the series premise to a new feature length movie (this is all new stuff-not a group of old episodes edited together). As in the series, Lee Thompson Young plays the title character-a high school student who is also the star of a futuristic television series where he plays a teen action hero named Silverstone. At the beginning of the movie he is struggling with whether to renew his contract with the show, which is seriously cramping his school and social life. Meanwhile on the show his Silverstone character is unhappy working at Mission Omega Matrix.

One day on the set a malfunctioning prop transports him to a parallel world where he is actually the action hero he is playing. The accident causes him to switch places with his on- screen character, who is transported to Jett's world of family, school, and television. The remainder of the movie concerns the process of Jett and Silverstone figuring out what has happened to them and the challenges of taking over each other's lives. Both the series and the movie have excellent casts with Michael Ironside as the television villain Kragg, Lindy Booth as Silverstone's partner Hawk, Ryan Sommers Baum as Jett's friend J.B., and Kerry Duff (no relation to Hillary) as his love interest.

This is an entertaining film, especially for those who enjoy the series. It has the good production elements of more expensive Disney features including a lot of close-ups of the cast and some nice morphing effects. The series itself was a cheaper production, it relied mostly on wide shots and had minimal effects.
