Time Out says
And so to the main substance of the film which, quite frankly, resembles Swiss cheese. Jeff Tracy’s son Alan is eager to join his father and older brothers on their rescue missions, but he’s just not old enough; which is why he’s mostly island-bound. Rather handily for Alan, a megalomaniac known as The Hood (Ben Kingsley) has set up a hoax alarm from space and Jeff and the boys have taken the bait, leaving them stranded for much of the film, while Alan and a few mates thwart Kingsley’s bank robbery plans in true Enid Blyton fashion. What impenetrable, overwrought codswallop this one’s turned out to be. Lest you start frothing at the mouth, I advise dropping the kids off at the box office and getting the hell out of there.
