Looking for an action movie that the entire family can watch?
I've got one perfect for Friday game night, that just came out this week!
In this follow up to Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Treasure, Mickey Matson is at it again; this time pitted against the evil Admiral Ironsides and his gang of pirates who are intent on destroying civilization. They're new invention, the Tesla Coil, is a weapon of mass destruction that will send an electromagnetic pulse throughout the world, destroying every electronic device in existence. With the help of a secret organization, Mickey and his best friend Sully embark on a mission to stop the pirates from taking over a submarine and stealing the last part needed to complete their devastating weapon. If Admiral Ironsides succeeds in his plan, civilization will be sent back to the Stone Age. It's a race against time, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
Check out the trailer:
This is one that the kids probably will find a lot more interesting than adults, probably because kids get the better of the adults in the movie! It's an enjoyable fare, but you may find yourself having to explaining some science if you have an inquisitive child, who starts asking about everything they see on the screen! LOL. We had not seen the first movie, but this one was very easy to keep up with, and some aludes to the previous movie didn't give anything really away from it's plot. It's a great movie for family game night as you could play a code movie, a pirate movie, or science related one, and make some great tie-in food too!
The DVD also includes a few bonuses: bloopers, behind the scenes, and special effects techniques/ All of fun to watch to get more info on the characters and actors portraying them. We give the DVD a high thumbs up, just like the Dove Organization!
One BTHM reader will win their own copy of this fun DVD for their family night!
