Review : Capture the flag

There are some films which we look forward to seeing at the cinema but for different reasons end up missing them.  Capture the flag was one of these films.  Both the girls and I were looking forward to seeing it but unfortunately we were unable to.

Space travel runs in Mike Goldwing's family: both his father and grandfather were astronauts. But the plucky 12-year-old's estranged grandfather, Frank, has lived a life isolated from his family after missing out on the chance to make history as a member of the Apollo 11 crew.

However, when Mike discovers that an eccentric billionaire plans to fly to the moon, claim its vast, valuable mineral resources, and destroy the American flag planted by the Apollo 11 astronauts, the countdown to a spectacular adventure begins! Mike, teamed with his grandfather, best friends Amy and Marty, and a clever chameleon, blasts off on an incredible moon-bound mission, determined to thwart the billionaire's evil plan

Lucky for us Capture the Flag is released on Digital HD on 23rd May, and on Blu-ray and DVD on 30th May 2016 an we have been sent a copy to review.  

I am not sure who was more excited to see the film me or the girls?  Either way we decided to make the most of it and have a 'space' themed evening.

The girls did some activity sheets whilst I got the DVD ready to play [Feel free to save and download the activity sheet]

The film was packed full of adventure and the girls found it incredibly funny in parts.  I really enjoyed the film too and so pleased we finally got to see it.  The film lives up to its trailer and is certainly worth watching with the family.

After the film we were inspired to build our very rocket, well how else will we go to the moon?

If you fancy building a rocket you could have a go at this one

We had a fun filled space themed day, and will be going to the moon in our rocket to capture the flag!
