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.

More of a Childrens Movie
1 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read the first comments on this movie and thought they were too harsh. This is obviously a children's movie that sends a pretty powerful message. A town of frightened folks stays head-strong in their beliefs because they are afraid. It's a fairy-tale, so that means anything goes because it's all made up. The special effects were better than most for its time. Compared to the computer generated movies I've seen in 2001, this is every bit as good. The plot is about a father who is dieing, his kids, who believe in the fairy legend that could save him, and a wife who doesn't believe in anything. It's interesting to see the family come together in an effort to save dad and teach the town a lesson. I think you'll be entertained and some emotions will definitely get stirred about.
