Storyline

14-year-old Lulu moves to a small provincial town with her mother and younger brother. One night, her brother is struck by a beam of white light - actually the spirit of Herman Hartmann from the 19th-century. To her despair, Lulu realizes that Herman has possessed her brother, and the two of them are whirled into a fevered adventure. Joined by Oliver, a rich kid, and Richard, a disillusioned clairvoyant and inventor, they take on the dark, supernatural forces gathering over the town - evil from deep in the land of the dead, determined to take over the world and see them die.

Extremely overrated movie, but great for kids.
30 August 2007 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

First of all, I'd like to tell you this: I am male, 25, and I had no expectations whatsoever when I saw this, just thought it would be interesting to see.

The plot: An EVIL wizard, whose name of course is NECROMANCER, which is also what he does, more or less, has possessed the body of a young boy, and now his older sister and her sorta boyfriend has to save him (and the world), by defeating the necromancer, using the help of a deceased member of a secret society that used to fight necromancers in the olden days. They also get some help from a guy who conveniently has built a soul-catcher (what are the odds)..

The verdict: Although this movie isn't terrible, the leading actress really doesn't seem to have a clue about acting, and in many scenes she just has this blank stare and seems quite uninterested, making us lose some interest in the movie, where she feigns being scared, sad, etc.

The special effects are very well-made for a Danish movie, and most of the supporting cast does a good job. But the story and plot isn't very logical, and there are quite a few things that makes no sense, or are extremely far-fetched and laughable.

All this doesn't matter though, as Nicolai Arcel has hordes of thousands of fans that have seen KONGEKABALE, and almost every Dane (from "Familien Danmark") just loves everything he or anyone else touches, especially if it looks like something straight out of Hollywood. I will not be popular for saying this, and I know many Danes will be mad at me for telling the truth here, as it apparently is every Danes duty to praise everything Nordisk Film (or whatever Danish film-distributor) makes, no matter how crappy it is. Especially stuff like "Store Planer" and "Overcoming".

BUT, not all I say is criticism, because this movie will be PERFECT for children, no doubt. If you have a child (or a child's brain), then this movie is the right choice. If you're an adult who likes good movies, then you will probably cringe at the acting and frown over the plot, although it may be somewhat entertaining on a lower level. 4/10
