One of my childhood favourites.....
24 November 2001 | by (Sherwood Park, Canada) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie back around 1988 when I was very young and I still remember that. It was on television and I was amazed at the scenery, creatures, and story!!!! I loved this movie so much that I saw it again and again. I later forgot about it untill about 3 years ago when I saw it for sale and bought it. The movie still amazed me and was still awsome!!!! I figured and learned some more things out since I am older and that made the movie even better! I like how to survive they had to learn to be friends and get along with each other which I thought was very nice. It's honestly a very simple, direct message in the movie, for us to survive and do well in life we must try to get along with one another and help each other out. We are always fighting wars and hurting one another, we truly have to stop that. I also figured out what the "mine" was all about ha ha. The dracs were being used as slaves at the end you find out in a mine. When I was young I had absolute no idea what the title meant. But all in all it was an awsome movie and will still go on as being one of my favourite movies. Yes the 80's had some of the best movies this world has ever known!
