Highly original
13 November 2005 | by (Bath, England) – See all my reviews

Tommy Tricker & the Stamp Traveller is an original film based on a child who can travel across the world on stamps. I haven't seen it since I was younger, but I remember that I enjoyed it, although it was quite frightening. I think it is a very imaginative film. (The basic plot of the film was about this young boy who was a stamp collector, and he could travel by putting himself onto stamps with a little bit of magic.) I remember that my brothers enjoyed this film too, although there were some very frightening bits in the film, and I seem to remember that the special effects were good. (Tommy being transfered to the stamp or from the stamp.)
