Storyline

Since as far back as Kyle and Evie Preston can remember, their grandmother told fantastical tales about elves who had been trapped underground by giants for thousands of years. Now grandmother is gone, and the siblings are surprised to discover that they have inherited a decrepit gold mine and a family home they never even knew existed. Upon discovering that grandmother's far fetched stories have a bizarre basis in reality and that by freeing the fairies from the mine they will discover a cure for their terminally ill father (Bernsen), Kyle and Evie race against time to free the trapped fairies and save their father's life.

Absolutely horrid.
15 August 2002 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I thought that I would enjoy the movie because it featured Malcolm McDowell, one of my favorite actors. I was quite wrong. I would never believe that so good an actor could be so tainted by the surrounding cast.

Aside from the horrible production quality (boom mic dipping down in the opening scene, BAMBOO AND PALM TREES in the "english forest"), the plot is subtle as a mack truck and the whole thing is stupid beyond words. Some of the characters even drift in and out of their accents.

I kept hoping that at some point, McDowell's character would kill and eat the family to liven things up. Never happened. Oh, Malcolm, how could you?
