Storyline

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.

Quotes

Mandy Finch: Now, this may not be the story of knights in shining armor, but dragons and heroes it certainly has. This is my friend Billy, and today on his 11th birthday, the fate of Spirit River will land in his hands. Spirit River is one of the oldest towns on the eastern seaboard. And legend has it, if you believe in that kind of stuff, that it's where the Vikings first came ashore in the New World. Now, trying to save a whole town isn't an easy job for an 11-year-old, but luckily Billy had some help, ...

Amateurish in every respect. Not watchable.
8 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Amateurish in every respect. Not watchable. This movie was a big disappointment for my wife daughter. We sat down for an evening together and ending up annoyed and feeling cheated. The movie would be useful for anyone interested in how not to make a movie. A well made movie is seamless and the viewer is not distracted while watching to wonder about he skills of those who made the movie. Conceivably a viewer might be forgiven if they thought that anyone can make a movie. This movie is a sure cure of such delusions. Just watch this and get reminded of how much effort it takes to develop a coherent plot, to have words for the characters that don't make them sound repetitious and insane and to set up shots where viewers can actually see what is going on.
