Hey, I like the idea of time-travelling back to earlier times. Some of my most favourite movies have been time-travel ones. Like "The Time Machine, Terminator, TimeCOP and such. I've liked reruns of "TimeTunnel" too.
It's okay (and actually pretty cool) to have kids doing this stuff, but maybe hype it up a bit. Some parts were a little slow. They could have left out the part with the guy throwing fairy dust around cause it didn't add anything to the movie. The parts on the train were a little kooky, but that sure was a neat train eh. It was really wild having ATVs in the old west.
I was about 15 when I first saw this movie and I just happened to see it again recently on Bell. I was surprised I still enjoyed it. And (even more amazing) my girlfriend watched it with me. She usually shies away from kid movies.
I think the boys and girls acting in this movie were better than most of the kids who make this type of stuff.
There are some other movies like this that were decent also like "Kid in King Arthur's Court and Kid in Aladdin's Palace. So maybe if you find you like this movie you should check those out too.
