Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens, formerly called Ben 10: Alien Dimensions, is a CGI movie that premiered on March 11, 2012.
A large tank is traveling through Bellwood. It is smashing over cars, while being chased by the police. Ben, Gwen, and Grandpa Max find it, and the tank begins growing spider-like legs to begin chasing them. They retreat under a tunnel, where their tires get destroyed. Max gets out to fight it, and tells Ben and Gwen that they can't fight on a school night.
They both get out, and Ben transforms into Upgrade and gets ready to fight. Gwen tries telling him that the tank needs a spell to be destroyed, and fights with Upgrade. Upgrade finally merges with the tank, but it overcomes his power. Gwen uses a spell on it, and the robot falls apart. Upgrade reverts to Ben, and the Omnitrix begins glowing pink, affected by the spell.
Ben is in an odd green world flying around on his hoverboard. He tries to find Grandpa Max, but is attacked by Heatblast, followed by 5 of his other aliens, as well as Way Big. Way Big then tells Ben he wants homework, and Ben wakes up in class and is hassled by his teacher. Cash finds Ben at his locker and shoves him in. Ben tries to transform into Four Arms, but instead becomes Heatblast, and busts out.
Ben is in his room as Heatblast, and Carl and Sandra are asking where he went. After he transforms back, he says he was looking for his underwear and they question him about the Heatblast footprints on the floor. Ben then gets grounded. That night, Ben is studying. He says he wished his work would just vaporize, and the Omnitrix vaporizes his laptop.
He calls Gwen about it, but Tetrax appears, telling Ben that Azmuth wants to speak with him. Ben goes with Tetrax and is beside his ship when he flies off. But suddenly, a blue To'kustar attacks them. Ben tries to turn into Way Big, but accidentally transforms into Stinkfly. He goes to attack the Evil Way Big after Tetrax explains that if you hit it on the fin, it will become paralyzed.
Ben transforms back, and manages to hang onto the Evil Way Big. He tells the Omnitrix to recharge, then it does and it destroys the To'kustar. Ben goes flying with Tetrax to find Azmuth. Tetrax puts a special setting onto the Omnitrix, but Ben is unaware of what it is. He is shot out of the ship by accident, and becomes Diamondhead to break the fall.
Max and Gwen are searching for Ben. They stop where Ben fought the To'kustar. Tetrax lands and tells them that he must tell them something. Meanwhile, Ben is walking as Diamondhead. The Omnitrix begins to time out, and Ben is happy that he will be able to catch a ride without freaking out the driver. Then he transforms into Four Arms because of the setting Tetrax put the Omnitrix into.
Retaliator then appears and begins attacking Four Arms. Retaliator reveals that he messed up Tetrax's ship, causing Ben to be shot out. Ben asks if he messed up Azmuth's ship too, making him late. Retaliator begins getting nervous by the mention of Azmuth. Ben manages to throw him away, and transforms into Upgrade.
Retaliator comes back and tries to attack Upgrade, but realizes that he wasn't the Tetramand that he had originally been attacking. Upgrade tries to sneak away, but is attacked by Retaliator again and they teleport to Rio de Janeiro. After fighting more, they are teleported to Egypt. Ben becomes Stnkfly and manages to escape.
They are flying through Bellwood and Ben becomes Heatblast. Retaliator captures Heatblast, but he transforms into Grey Matter and escapes. Gwen, Max, and Tetrax are talking when they find Azmuth's ship with a huge hole in it. They watch the log and find that the To'kustar attacked Azmuth's ship. Retaliator teleports in and tells them Azmuth is dead, then shows them the To'kustar attacking.
He begins asking for the To'kustar, but they try to explain it wasn't the To'kustar attacking them. They trap Retaliator into a wall and sets the ship to self-destruct. Grey Matter runs down his street and to his house where Sandra and Carl find him. Sandra begins attacking him, but Grey Matter jumps on her head. She throws him outside. Grey Matter becomes Diamondhead, and Sandra passes out and Max shoots Carl, knocking him out.
Tetrax and Gwen come out and Tetrax takes the setting off of Ben's Omnitrix. Retaliator appears and attaches Ben to a rope. Ben transforms back to human and tells Retaliator to explain his connection to Azmuth. At the mention of Azmuth, the Omnitrix begins glowing and teleports Ben, Gwen, Tetrax, and Retaliator into a weird city.
Ben and Retaliator are in a forest of diamond shards. Ben asks where his Omnitrix is, since it was missing from his wrist. Suddenly, a bunch of Lepidopterrans begin attacking them. Gwen and Tetrax are trying to find where they are and Gwen says they are in the Omnitrix. There is thunder, and Gwen questions why there would be thunder on a sunny day.
Then Tetrax says it's not thunder, then a bunch of Vulpimancers attack. Gwen uses a spell and they disappear. Ben is with Retaliator again and he tries to find out who the To'kustar was. Retaliator says that aliens don't fall from the sky. Then Gwen and Tetrax fall from the sky. Tetrax thinks that they are on Petropia, but Gwen explains it is a simulation by the Omnitrix.
Gwen captures Retaliator in a mana bubble where Retaliator explains that he is Azmuth's father. They begin asking about the To'kustar. Ben and Gwen are flying around on a mana platform. They find Tetrax and Retaliator fighting the To'kustar. Gwen casts a spell on Retaliator to make him teleport them out. They all teleport out, including the To'kustar.
Retaliator chases after the To'kustar. Ben tries to transform but the Omnitrix transforms his mom into Heatblast and his dad into Wildmutt. They attack Ben, Gwen, Max, and Tetrax. The two figure out that the Omnitrix has transformed Azmuth into the Evil Way Big. They are in a mana bubble, while Sandra tries to destroy it.
She is finally successful, but Tetrax puts up a diamond shield. Ben becomes Way Big and begins attacking the Evil To'kustar. Way Big manages to knock him down, but Retaliator attacks Ben, thinking he is the Evil To'kustar too. The Evil To'kustar gets up and Ben and Gwen try to explain to Retaliator that the Evil To'kustar is Azmuth.
They continue fighting and Ben tells Retaliator to stop Evil To'kustar you have to aim for the fin, so Retaliator does and hits Ben. Ben transforms to normal and Gwen casts a spell on the Evil To'kustar. Azmuth manages to capture Ben, Gwen, and Retaliator, then uses Retaliator to fix the Omnitrix. Azmuth tells Retaliator he should stay away from the Mechamorph Armor because it makes people extremely aggressive, then he takes off Retaliator's armor, revealing a regular Galvan.
Ben asks for Azmuth to turn his parents back to normal. Gwen and Ben use the Omnitrix to transform them back to normal and they let Ben go on a fishing trip. Azmuth and Retaliator then leave. Azmuth tells Ben and Gwen to stop arguing about who destroyed the Rustbucket. Azmuth wears the Mechamorph suit and fixes the Rustbucket. The movie ends with Ben, Gwen, and Max on another road trip, while being attacked by Dr. Animo and his giant frog.
