Storyline

Stuck in their late Grandfather's country cottage with no TV, Anthea, Robert and Chris are resigned to a boring week until they find a mouldy old carpet and a strange golden egg. But when the egg accidentally falls into the bonfire, it hatches into the mythical firebird, the Gloden Phoenix. So begins an amazing journey and the adventure of a lifetime, as the Phoenix takes them to a land of enchantment, magic and fantasy - via a magic flying carpet. Written by L.H. Wong <as9401k56@ntuvax.ntu.ac.sg>

This movie has it all!
27 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

A new classic, in the genre of kid's movies with horrible puppets. Not since Pet Shop has there been such a repulsive puppet star, as stiff and awkward as the script in which it reads. Butter up the popcorn, dim the lights, and get ready to fast-forward through the human actors, cause this bird really knows how to fly!

My score: 2
