Kids LOVED this movie
21 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not a 10 because of it's million dollar Hollywood blockbuster actors, effects, etc. But because my kids really loved this movie. My 7-10 year old's especially were on the edge of their seats by the end of the movie. Yes, as a grown up we can see that this is cheap, cheesy, and made over a decade ago but generally kids don't care about that stuff. And my kids certainly didn't mind. For me the BEST thing about this movie was that it was CLEAN!!! If we have to watch cheap unrated movies filmed in eastern Europe to find clean and wholesome for our children, then so be it. I give this movie a 10 because we all had a great movie night and I didn't come away thinking, "now how am I going to explain this to my kids?"
