1. The entire family can enjoy it. No foul language, no mushy love scenes, and there are parts that are exciting and funny enough that even adults will have a good time.
2. The "mean kid" isn't so cruel that you hope he falls dead; yes, he is a jerk - but not too big of a bully.
3. The movie is fun, even though it's for the kids - I never felt like poking my eyes out just to make it stop, which tends to happen with movies just for kids.
4. Finally a movie for average, ordinary kids in the 6 - 12 category. This movie is safer than Space Camp (which has a bit of language), but still has cool up-to-date technology. It's just going to let kid's have a good time.
Now, don't get this movie if you are a former Space Camper and want to relive your experience - it will just make you mad. They combine activities from Space and Aviation Camp and throw in things that don't happen in any camp (including the new Robotics Camp). Don't get this movie if you are a space buff that cringes when people get things wrong - there is a LOT that is wrong, not plausible, and ridiculous even to imagine. However, if you just like space and enjoy a fun movie that allows you to defy logic (like NASA picking future astronauts based on how they do as a team at Space Camp) - then this movie is for you.
What makes it a 5 is the synergy of all the parts. Every part taken alone ranks 3 1/2 - 4; but put together the parts work just right to make this a 5. Honestly, I left the movie and came right how to pre-order the DVD.
NASA let Space Camp offer a trip to space for the winning team of a competition. A Space Camp councilor offered the main character ( a child prodigy) and his future team a trip to space camp, but when the main character's mother found out about the winning team getting an actual trip into space she refused to let him go.The main character than claimed he was going on a fishing trip with his dad (who for one reason or another lived somewhere else (don't know if the parents were divorced or if he lived somewhere due to his work)and snuck off to space camp.He determined to win the trip to space. At the same time astronauts and cosmonauts were having a life threatening problem on the space station. An older team sabotaged the main characters team in the final event and shortly after his parents find out that he tricked them and came to get him. His space camp councilor found out about the problem on the space station and and through him the main character found out about it.The main character hatched a plan to save the astronauts and cosmonauts and told his team leader about it.The team leader started to be convinced and new someone at the mission control fore the space station and convinced him that the main character and his space camp team could help.They linked the simulators to the actual space station and robotic astronauts to do the work while the astronauts and cosmonauts conserved as much of the remaining oxygen as they could. through the robonauts and other remote controlled equipment that was linked to the space camp simulators, they bought the astronauts enough time to be rescued.Even though the older team had more points (due to them cheating in the final event), because the main character and his team did save the lives of everyone on the station they were declared the winners of the competition and where scheduled to be on an actual trip into space. The End.
Even my kids got bored with it after 30 mins or so.
As Glover's character in the movie says, a bit pontifically, at one point, the space program that was formerly so robust, such a source of national pride and accomplishment, is now in danger of fading almost completely away. This is a mistake on many levels, and while this is a highly imperfect film, the one thing it manages to do very well is capture some of the essential, exciting nature of space exploration.

A fun family video that will be much welcome in the collection available in the guest cabin. The story is a bit far fetched, but it's still fun to watch.Published 5 months ago by Harry F. Drabik
