Lovely film for the whole family
21 February 2006 | by (Atlanta Georgia) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Robert Davi films. I think he was marvelous in his part as Merlin, and the interaction between Ben and Himself is magical in itself. It just goes to show how talented Robert is and can handle any part or accent. I loved it! The South African country side was beautiful as well, and those houses were charming. Children and those young at heart should like this film, makes you want to believe in magic. And shows children that you can do anything you put your mind to. Children will come away from this film, learning to stand up for themselves and the difference between good and evil. and the women in the theaters will come away with dreams of Robert as Merlin making all their dreams come true- sigh!
