I am surprised at the other reviewers; I think the one point that most reviewers are missing is that it's a children's movie based on a children's book. My ten year old son loved it. It's hard to find clean action-adventure movies that appeal to boys and this one worked well. Sword fights, near death moments, supernatural content, chase scenes all without excessive gore, cleavage, or foul language.
Several comments have been made about the poor acting. I didn't see that. Come on folks, Sam Niell is the main bad guy.
This movie is available on Netflix. There is a sequel in the making and we'll watch that when it comes out.
