First rate indie scifi for the whole family
5 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A great balance of mystery and action, I have watched this film many times, and consider it to be one of my favorites. An interesting performance by Oscar-nominee Gary Busey as the evil king compliments the innocence of the outcast children. Through the animation and FX didn't come from ILM, the filmmakers did a pretty good job of adding some interesting dimensions with the space ships, droids and tentacled beast in the pit. I also like the fact that the film had some depth and underlying spiritual content that is so lacking from a lot of films these days. When I was in the Shadowlands, I wanted the king to die, the kids to be saved and the leads to fall in love...watch the film to see if I got my wish :-)
