This film is perfect for my sons with Space, Robots and waterguns! Well my older son (12) was disappointed that it was water but I think this makes it more family friendly and suitable for all ages; plus it means they are more likely to want to go outside and have a water fight with their own guns! The out of this world adventure is from the makers of ‘The Nut Job,’ Bolts and Blip: Battle of the Lunar League has a great storyline and graphics it appealed to a range of ages. My boys have watched it several times and it has really engaged their interest.
Bolts and Blip was originally a TV show where episodes were 22 minutes long and there was 26 episodes in total now it has been made into a film containing all 26 episodes. Itis now a film which is also available to watch in 3d.
