Review

This fantasy offering from movie giants Alfonso Cuarón and JJ Abrams certainly gets off to a flying start. A little girl, Bo, is taken from the scene of a car crash in which her foster parents are summarily murdered. Meanwhile Tate, a death row prisoner, is niftily broken out of jail by a Mission: Impossible-like team and tasked with protecting Bo, who has a set of very special skills – levitation, precognition, mind-reading and the like. They’re soon on the run from a mysterious mogul and his unwavering henchwoman.

Plotwise, it sounds unpromising – as well as keeping Bo safe, Tate has to follow her as she does “good deeds” – but this pilot episode, directed by Cuarón, is saved by frenetic pacing and a sweet but not cloying young lead in Johnny Sequoyah as Bo. Familiar faces include Delroy Lindo and Kyle MacLachlan.
