Why is it the best of movies, are the ones that get poor advertising? This movie has the same type of magic, ET had for me in the 80s, and thought this type of writing was long lost! Glad I'm wrong, as this turned out to be a very beautiful family movie, one of the few my entire family enjoyed watching together!
So how could a movie like this, made by Disney, not be known about? I haven't looked at the publishing date, so can't blame the pandemic, yet!
How did I find out about it? I was watching one of my favorite posters on YouTube, and after watching movie recaps kicked in. I was about to stop it, when the interesting clip played of a child being released from a police station, caught my attention. Why was she there in the first place, and where was her parents? If that wasn't enough to get ones attention, the next thing did. She complains to the officer, that a pin in her belongings isn't hers, and as she touches it, is suddenly thrown into a new world with a futuristic city. How the heck can a mere pin do this? I wasn't about to finish watching the recap and ruin it for me, I ran right to Amazon and took a risk buying it. Well worth the risk as Im watching it for the second time.
Gist of the story, all of mankind is supposed to be wiped out in days, yet one child can stop it all, and of course, there are people who want mankind gone, who are out to kill this child.
Few good actors in this movie too! Hugh Laurie aka Doctor House, who plays the same type of miserable man in this film, minus the Vicodin popping. George Clooney, wow, would have been an interesting cross over had this been the two shows combined, but heck, the movie is just as good even better! Movie is 2015, so Pandemic had nothing to do with it not being known, at least to me. Well blame it on bad advertising, since In 2015, didn't even see a preview. Most likely the actors name them selves were the selling point?
Don't trust the movie counter, all the bonus content is after the movie, but counter doesn't reflect this. Not sure why they just didn't add it as bonus content you can view in the list, you just need to find it. You may need to reload the player as again the counter won't display the extra content till the film is first started, so remember where you left off.
