When a loving suburban mom is seized by an alien snatch squad and whisked off to Mars her nine-year-old son hitches a lift aboard the rocket. However, after hooking up with a renegade American astronaut who's made his home on the Red Planet, he discovers that his mum's life is in danger and he's only got hours to save her. Using Robert Zemeckis's consistently improving motion capture technique, this is a captivating and visually impressive kids' outing with particular credit going to Dan Fogler's largely improvised stranded spaceman Gribble.
