||Earth prepares for a pre-emptive strike against an alien race to prevent a second invasion, using the capabilities of young people and one youth in particular, who is capable of developing winning strategies in space wars.
||There is a bit of violence – fisticuffs, bullying? Otherwise only views of space ships fighting with lasers.
||This seemed like a version of the usual raw recruit and bullying trainer’s film. If you’ve seen the trailer then you’ve seen the film. Fantastic CGI but ultimately unsatisfying.
