Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

In the absence of Macaulay Culkin, cute little Alex D Linz plays the resourceful youngster left to his own devices when an international espionage team try to steal back a top-secret computer chip hidden in his new toy. Pity those hapless baddies as the plucky boy devises ingenious booby traps and performs engaging heroics to foil them. Writer John Hughes's third neatly plotted variation on the same theme is good knockabout fun, with Linz a winning replacement for Culkin. There are some genuine laughs, and not too much saccharin or cartoon-style brutality.
