Branded as a 'nerd' and harassed by the school bully, 12-year-old Arthur is rescued by a magical alchemist/troll but is soon able to return the favor. Arthur's loving mom, who struggles to keep her devious ex-husband from gaining custody of Arthur, dismisses her son's 'fantasies' until she realizes their all-too-real immediate danger and joins forces with Arthur, the troll, the Knights of the Square Table (Arthur's pals Natalie and Tim), and a dashing but washed up video-game master named Shane. Together, they hope to conquer an unleashed dragon and the wicked vice-principal who threaten civilization. Written by RA/AL

The worst.
28 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am sorry, but this movie is the worst fantasy film ever made. The acting was horrible and the story was so poor that no wonder the dialog was pure torture. I was expecting to be at the least, entertained, and at the most, to be involved. I was neither. The characters were not believable, nor was the plot. Teens will find this laughable. Even young children will be bored. It is unfortunate that it seems that most of the money was spent on very poor special effects. A true disappointment.

The one highlight of the film is the music. At least it was entertaining.

I do not recommend this film to anyone. A total waste of time.
