Critic Consensus: Ben 10 gratefully sets a new standard for cartoon adaption movies and giving audiences something unfamiliar to be entertained with. Even if it's running time is unusual, It still manages to entertain audiences throughout with it's funny and action-packed visuals. Surprisingly, this is a more eye candy visual, unique, and source respected material of the original cartoon.

Script(Feel free to add or edit):
Warner Bros and Legendary studios logo but with green glow and sci-fi like sounds in background
INT. Space Battle for the Omnitrix
A Spaceship chase suddenly happens. Azmuthis in a smaller ship with the Omnitrix while being chased by Vilgax who was in the bigger ship named Chimerian Hammer trying to get it from him.
INT. INSIDE THE Chimerian Hammer
Vilgax’s henchman Corona
“Lord Vilgax, our Hull damage is at 20% but the ship is still operating”
“Splendid, prepare to board this Unruly vermin’s ship and collect the Omnitrix. I must have it now!”
The Chimerian Hammer closes in on Azmuth’sship and shoots at it.
INT. Azmuth’s ship
“Master Azmuth, we are being shot at, but mercifully we found a planet not far where we could stow away. I’m equanimous there is sanctuary.”
“Well, what is the name of this unprecedented realm we are coming upon.”
“It is called Earth, sire.”
“Indeed. Computer set coordinates for Earth, third planet from the sun.”
“Course set for Earth imminent.”
The ship tries to fly as far away from Vilgax as possible to make it to Earth. Theirpropulsion systems got shot.
Vilgax’s henchman Psyphon
“Sire, Propulsion systems destroyed!”
“Ascending now, The Omnitrix is mine!”
“Azmuth, we got hit. We won’t make it to Earth.”
“Alright that’s fine.”
“Hey it’s fine, we send the Omnitrix to Earth. Vilgax isn’t after me, he’s after my greatest invention, and with the Omnitrix hidden on Earth, it could be impossible for Vilgax to find it.”
Azmuth activates and puts the Omnitrix in the escape pod
“You sure this will work?”
“Affirmative, It will be sent to the most secure but secret spot possible onEarth, and whoever may happen to find it will make sure my invention is kept in one piece. Hopefully it isn’t in the possession of a dimwit, definitely not Vilgax.”
“Computer, send Omnimatrix any secret and secure location on Earth. Whoever may find it shall be worthy and holds the key to the entire universe.”
“Omnimatrix, setting course to Earth."
The Bay pod carrying the Omnitrix exits the ship and flies to Earth. Vilgax watches the pod fly away and gets angry.
Vilgax angrily fires another shot at Azmuth’s ship.
Int. Bellwood Middle School
It is the last day of school and Ben is in his class waiting for the day to end.
Int. Ben’s teacher Mr. Hoffman’s classroom
Ben’s teacher giving his class a farewell for the summer.
“Well Friends, this is the end of our journey together this school year. Sadly, I won’t see you for 3 months. Gladly, I will see you all again after 3 months and I am here most of the summer teaching summer school if anyone is interested."
The class boos him.
“Yes, I know you guys are tired of school and I agree you do deserve a breakfrom this excessive classwork you were given all year.”
He keeps talking and Ben on the other hand is hoping for the bell to ring just so he can get the hell out of here.
“C’mon, C’mon, 60 more seconds!”
The final School bell rings
“Yes, It’s Summer Time!”
Ben throws a paper airplane at the teachers head.
“Have an amazing summer, students. And Tennyson, I’m glad you had fun this year, but do you mind calming down with the pranks, it’s getting a little out of hand.”
Ben leaves the classroom, and secretly flips off the teacher once he wasn’t looking. He is then outside and walks to an RV named the Rust Bucket which is his Grandpa Max's and that he will be traveling in the whole summer.
Grandpa max then rolls down the window.
“Hey Tennyson, how is my favorite grandson doing? Ready to get this show on the road this summer?”
“Yes Grandpa, can’t wait to stay away from my annoying asshole parents.”
“Alright, please watch your mouth, and don’t worry I think after this summer you will no longer be depressed and will regain an amazing relationship back with your parents. How about you come in and start our journey out rough and finish strong fantastically.”
“Fine, OK Boomer.”
Ben enters the Rust Bucket.
Int. Rust Bucket
When Ben enters the Rust Bucket. His cousin Gwen happened to be in there too.
“How’s life, dweeb?”
Ben reacts with disgust.
“Ugh, Grandpa, What the hell is my stupid cousin doing here?!”
“She wanted to come along, but promise me that you and your beloved cousin will have a great time together this summer.”
“Oh no we definitely won’t, Ben annoys me constantly about me and boyfriend and teases me behind my back telling my friends this. Thankfully I don’t go to his stupid school, or I would’ve had a terrible year if I went.”
“Oh please, that was one time.”
“Ok you two, settle down. The Rust Bucket isn’t gonna drive itself, we gotta stop by Yosemite tonight. Thankfully we are 200 miles away.”
“200?!, that is a long ass drive.”
Grandpa Max chuckles
“Not for us son, this beast can at least go faster 10x than any Ferarri on the road.”
Grandpa Max started to drive the Rust Bucket. It started out a little slow and then suddenly moved at a higher speed.
Int. Very quiet area Yosemite National Park.
The Rust Bucket is seen pulling into a dark area and stopped there for the night.
“OK kids, We are here and beat the traffic.”
Ben stares weirdly in disgust at Gwen.
“You want to know what sucks more, being with you, you unintelligent doofus.”
