Brief Synopsis:
Ben 10: Race Against Time - Armageddon Edition is my attempt to improve the first live action Ben 10 movie. The film has its good moments but unfortunately they are overshadowed by some glaring flaws. Overall this edit aims to give a better cartoon to live action experience by removing the cringe and weird moments. Bringing it closer to the tone of the original series.
Unlike many of the cartoon to live action adaptations, Race Against Time and its successor, Alien Swarm, did pretty well for what they were able to accomplish. Though I thought this movie could be improved a little bit with some trims to move the plot along and remove the most glaring oddities.
