Great adventure movie
7 March 2001 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

I just don´t understand what´s wrong with this movie.. I say this due to the comments I´ve read about it.

It´s most enjoyable, the great and unknown David Hatton (the professor) is without a doubt the real star of the movie...

Great photography, fine performances from the entire cast including the guest stars Peter Cushing and Terence Stamp make this movie most amusing and a must to see from time to time.

Perhaps it´s a movie for children, I don´t know. But that´s precisely why I like it so much.

Bearing in mind the movies that Hollywood and even Europe offer at present, I really think that the dose of ingenuity this movie releases is just unpayable.

I adore it.
