Where to start? While obviously a passionate personal project for some of those involved I regret this film fails on every level. I don't understand the positive review sitting on its IMDb page. The effects made us cringe,the plot is lame and the acting is generally unconvincing, though Picardo and Young do what they can with a clunky script.
The sci-fi fantasy sequences just don't work, they have an amateurish look that suggests the budget was too modest for the undertaking. Sayys is very watchable as a basketball mentor type, but falls to a plot twist that left us bewildered. Maybe Picardo (and Theresa Russell no less!) did this as a favour, maybe they needed the work. Even they can't rescue it.
Our main complaint is that the marketing on the DVD box proclaims it to be something it isn't, a sci-fi fantasy epic (with clear hints at NeverEnding Story in the artwork). Epics need scale - this was a miniature. Avoid.
