The Jetsons was The Flintstones space-age cousin, running on TV in the early 1960's for a single season before being cancelled. A re-run during the tail-end of the 1980's saw it amass a new legion of fans, but this feature length episode still comes a couple of decades too late.
The animation is no better than television standard, as is the story, pitting the Jetson family against a horde of alien saboteurs who object to their asteroid being used for a mining colony.
Under 8's might get a degree of entertainment from this, as would massive fans of the original cartoon series, but for everyone else it's all quite average.
