Entertaining family movie, don't be swayed by the negative comments and rating
Don't be mislead by the overall rating, we found this movie very entertaining when in needed of some light entertainment for the evening!
Yes the story is run of the mill seen before stuff but it was well put together and flowed well enough, it certainly took me back to my childhood and the weekly trip to the video shop with my dad to rent a family film for the night, and can only imagine it would be great for kids (unfortunately ours is not old enough yet to appreciate anything other than tellytubies).
I definitely put it up with all the good old 80's classics like goonies, back to the future etc, as a no brains good old adventure... can also recommend spiderwick chronicles as a similar fantasy adventure film!
