Kids might enjoy this one, but adults will be bored silly. A family takes in a lost boy they find wandering in the wilderness with no recollection of his identity or his family. They start to notice that he has superb abilities for driving cars, flying jets and getting to REALLY high levels of Atari games. What they don’t know is that he’s actually a robot in the form of a boy who was created by the American government and who is now being targeted for destruction if they can ever catch up to him. Fun story that youngsters will latch on to, but the playing out is dull and the characters unimaginative.
