Watch this if you liked: "Cars", "Planes", "Transformers"

The Good, the Bad and the Alien Truck:

• The movie is like a lower budget "Transformers", but more fun too as it is not so serious and incredibly light-hearted - a perfect movie for younger children.

• The CGI animation of the movie looks fairly simple and it doesn't blend well with the live-action scenes. This just proves that Chris Wedge should just stick to animation movies as live-action can be a bit too much for him.

• The plot of the movie may be pretty simple and formulaic, but it certainly is an enjoyable ride for the kids, and is also a hilarious feel-good movie to enjoy with the entire family.


• This is Chris Wedge's first live-action film.
