Kenny Begins ★½

Though it derives a certain albeit limited charm from its low-budget feel and science-fiction references, and though the special effects are fairly good, the movie is nevertheless forgettable. It is intentionally ridiculous, but not in a particularly entertaining way. Adequate but generally bland acting; Johan Rheborg as Kenny Starfighter and Jan Mybrand as Rutger Oversmart, the chief villain, are the exceptions and give the best performances in the film; Bill Skarsgård does not impress; comedians Johan Glans, Björn Gustafsson, and Sissela Kyle only elicit smiles at best. A prequel to the Swedish TV series "Kenny Starfighter".
