Ben 10 Season 3
Ben 10 Season 3 revolves around Ben Tennyson, his cousin Gwen, and their grandfather Max as they continue on their summer road trip aboard their campervan. Ben is the main hero, due mainly to the Omnitrix, a a watch-like alien device found by Ben in the first episode of the first season. This device bonds Ben’s DNA with Alien DNA to enable him to transform into one of ten alien superheroes who help Ben defeat that bad guys that pop up like clock work in every episode.
Things don’t always go to plan however, and Gwen and Max have to help out from time to time.
Rendered in traditional 2D animation, much like the saturation of Japanese animations found on TV after school, Ben 10 Proves that you don’t need flashy 3D graphic to capture a child’s imagination.
Ben 10 manages to succeed with a basic, traditional storyline of good vs evil, wrapped up in the excitement of alien life forms and a summer long adventure with granddad.
Ben 10 is all about good vs evil, and good winning every time. It’s also about remaining grounded as Ben tends to get into trouble when he gets to big for his boots.
Cartoon violence is still violence, and if children act out fight scenes from Ben 10, you’ll have to make sure they don’t take it past fun rumble and tumbling..
FilmGuide recommends that the first viewing of any DVD be a family affair so that parents know exactly what their children are watching, and can talk about any issues raised by the storyline.
