When I first heard of this mini-series, I thought it sounded pretty cool and having Christopher Lloyd was a potential bonus... wrong! It was just plain bad and waaayyyy too long at almost 3 hours, sans commercials. I endured through it to the finish but it was tough, the acting was pretty bad and the special effects were a bit below-par for a SciFi channel original (not sure if it was, but it smelled like their work).
The story was so-so but everybody seemed to have pointy teeth (what's up with that?! Did they get a special on vampire fangs or raid the Buffy set?) I felt like I was watching Xena, Hercules, or Flash Gordon (the new one that sucked so bad I couldn't even bear to watch it). I don't really like these kind of chinsy films with lousy acting and back-yard special effects, so to me it wasn't fun.
If you do like those TV series, then this one might be right up your alley, but I didn't think it was very good at all. You've been warned...
