Billy Owens is turning 11. Turns out this little rapscallion was born on the 11th day of the 11th month, at 11pm no less, so it ventures to reason he has some powers of the magical variety. Of course, he and his friends, a precocious know-it-all named Mandy, and his other pal, the not too bright Devon, will all go on some kind of mystical adventure. You see Billy Owens lives in one of the oldest towns in the East Coast, Spirit River. Billy, on his eleventh birthday, is about to discover an unusual item up for sale in a local second-hand shop, one that's likely going to save both himself and the entire town of Spirit River. Billy, in case you hadn't already figured it out from the opening paragraph, is going to discover that he's a boy wizard. Written by John W. Urbanski Jr.

Did You Know?


The screenwriter wrote this movie with different characters and based off of Norse magical traditions. It was changed beyond recognition from it's original premise. See more »


Billy Owens: This place is...
Devon Turner: What?
Billy Owens: Familiar. Feels like I've been here before.
Mandy Finch: Deja vu?
Devon Turner: I'm not into voodoo. My brother says it gives you gas.
Mandy Finch: Not voodoo, you twit. Deja vu. Deja vu is the illusion of having already experienced something actually being experienced for the first time.
Billy Owens: That's it. It's weird, but I think we'll be back. And soon.

Made for youtube?
6 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My fourth grade daughter found home-made videos on Youtube. In these videos, kids off camera hold various Barbie dolls and "act" out a "drama" they made up themselves. In all honesty, these Youtube videos are vastly more entertaining, better-acted and more professionally made than this so-called film was. This film looks like it was made by a couple of fifth-graders on a computer. The acting is terrible, the continuity is non-existent, the plot meandering and lacking anything of interest, the characters are shallow and one dimensional, the camera work is amateurish and best of all, it is a blatant rip-off of the Harry Potter franchise. This film comes complete with a boy wizard, his obnoxiously precocious female know-it-all friend, and his dull best bud. There's even a bully with blond hair.

If you are looking for a film worth watching, this is not the one. I would not even characterize this as a B movie; D or F seems more appropriate to me.
