Synopsis

Double bill of live-action films based on the children's animation franchise. 'Race Against Time' (2007) is a spin-off from the 'Ben 10' series which follows Ben Tennyson (Graham Phillips), an average ten-year-old whose life is transformed when he discovers the Omnitrix, a watch-like device that allows him to change himself into ten different aliens. When an evil alien named Eon (Christien Anholt) arrives from another galaxy to claim the Omnitrix and destroy the earth, it's up to Ben to stop him. The sequel, 'Alien Swarm' (2009), is a spin-off from the 'Ben 10: Alien Force' series in which the characters have matured. When attempting to apprehend alien nanotechnology dealers, Ben (Ryan Kelley), Gwen (Galadriel Stineman) and Kevin (Nathan Keyes) discover Ben's childhood friend, Elena (Alyssa Diaz), is one of the dealers who lured Ben there to get his help finding her father, Victor Validus (Herbert Siguenza). Kevin and Gwen both have misgivings about Elena's intentions, especially when the nanotechnology comes to life and attacks, but Ben, who is more trusting, decides to help Elena. Validus, an ex-apprentice of Grandpa Max (Barry Corbin), is aware that the creators of the nanotechnology, 'The Hive', intend to take over the world. When Kevin and Gwen discover this, they go to assist Ben. However, millions of nanotechnology chips have spread around the planet and the team must take out 'The Hive' Queen (voice of Vicki Lewis) in order to destroy the chips.
