    6 / 10
    I was told this movie is a real gem. Well, it turned out to be a germ, rather than a gem.
    It`s stupid, nearly plotless and it features 2 of the ugliest kids EVER!!!
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and while some of the effects are hideous, the picture is nicely presented.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are frequently used and are especially effective during the numerous flight scenes.
    The menus are animated with sounds.
    There are no extras on the disk.
    Bottom line - despite the wonderful soundtrack, this is a BOMB that only little children can slightly enjoy. Avoid.
