The world is hanging by a string. Can this family pull it together? After a 16-year absence, Claire and Matt Thompson are reintroduced to The Jensen Project — a secret community of geniuses conducting advanced underground research to solve the world’s most difficult problems. The former scientists, accompanied by their tech-minded teenage son Brody, are thrust into a frantic pursuit to keep a potentially dangerous technology from falling into the wrong hands. As the family races against the clock to stop the group’s rogue faction, they discover an important truth. In this high-pressure, high-tech world, sometimes the smartest thing we can do is lean on each other.

Dove Review

“The Jensen Project” is a fascinating sci-fi story reminiscent of “Spy Kids” and “Mom and Dad Save the World.” Matt and Claire Thompson and their son, Brody are a family of geniuses who are enlisted to (what else?) “Save the world!” Their goal is to find Professor Edwin Jensen, chief scientist at his family’s futuristic lab. The Jensen Project is an organization dedicated to advancing world peace through technology, science and medicine. At first, Brody uses his brainpower to skip school before joining his mom and dad to locate the deadly device.

Professor Jensen stole a secret device from the lab and plans on selling it to the highest bidder. That high bidder plans to corrupt the use of an advanced medical breakthrough into something that could infect our U.S. military.

This is a fast-paced, highly entertaining movie for the entire family; especially fun for teckies and sci-fi fans. The overriding theme is expressed by mom, Clair Thompson, “Be the best that you can be!”

We’re pleased to award “The Jensen Project” the Dove Family Approved Seal for all ages.
