Excelent special-effects film designed for children.
The opening scene from this movie is amazing, the entire movie is a lesson in cinematography. It was shot on location in Tunisia and the realism of the locations certainly helps to bring the magic tale back to life. Amazing architecture and artifacts in almost every city shot, a treat to location managers and prop people. The script is obviously directed at young children so don't expect much there, your children will enjoy the beautiful special effects and the breathtaking flying carpet effects, this is the first time I see a chase between a winged horse and a digitally animated carpet so professionally done. Most of the special effects are seamless, you won't even know you are looking at a matte painting or a scale model in most cases. Not bad for a small low budget movie. Warning: Rhona Mitra as the teenage princess is so hot she steals the scene everytime she appears on the screen! You might remember her as Laura Croft (for all you video game fans). I recommend you watch it on DVD rather than VHS and with your kids.
