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: I can't even protect myself from Kurt Nemees. How am I supposed to find a treasure with half a map and a bicycle?
Mandy Finch: A hero is properly defined as somebody who does something dangerous to help somebody else.
Devon Turner: Great. Where do I sign up?
Mandy Finch: I mean, that it doesn't matter if you succeed, only that you try.
William Thurgood: Billy, you can be very powerful with some lessons and some help from your friends. There is nothing you can't do.
Billy Owens: So, where do we start?
William Thurgood: I believe it would be prudent if we start at the beginning.

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.
