Still good. Clever allusions to (I think) Dr. No (the villain's underground lair), "War of the Worlds" (the robots), "The Empire Strikes Back" (the forest chase scenes). Maybe some more to "A Series of Unfortunate Events" since the children in both form such strikingly similar groups.

The usual living-a-normal-life-while-fighting-evil predicament explored in, e.g., all the Sherlock Holmes stories, or, more recently, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. ( )
