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):
100th 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 end of a school day and Ben is in his class waiting for the day to end.
