Could have been better, expected more
15 July 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

The mix of magic and technology was not handled nearly as well as I anticipated. The ability of the main character to shapeshift into any creature just by seeing a picture of it.

Later in the movie the title character was able to 'dissolve' into data and go fight a 'cyberwitch'. This ability was never completely explained as to how this is possible.

For pre-teens, these are probably minor points that many would not catch.
