When Francis tells Cid that he is going to help him slay the Jabberwock, Cid tells him that he is sadistic. "Sadistic" was named after the Marquis deSade who lived a few hundred years later, therefore the word was not yet in use. See more »

Stay away from the Jabberwock
28 March 2012 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the many produced by the SyFy Channel: in general they are regular to bad (mostly) productions, in all senses, and Jabberwock is not an exception.

The movie is about two travelers, in the Medieval Age (aparently in our world, since they mention the Romans), and who traveling by the mountains, find a lake with some egg like stones - that are in fact eggs of Jabberwock.

One of the eggs hatch, in a rainstorm (in this area there wasn't rain for decades), and a dragon like creature, the Jabberwock, emerges, killing one of the travelers and starts pursuing the other, who ends up in a village, where we meet the other protagonists.

The rest of the story is the hunt to kill this creature, among other small clichés hooks of tragedy, heroism and romance.

The movie has nice scenarios, but the general acting in the movie is terrible, with no exception. The Jabberwock itself is made with CG, and is relatively acceptable.

The action and fighting parts of the movie are the worst: the camera shifts from views from the men branding swords, and the CG monster, like bad movies of the 60-70's, among many other incongruence in story and actions that occurs.

By the way, "Jabberwocky" is a poem from Lewis Caroll, that appears in the sequences of the book Alice in Wonderland - and many things are related to it in the film) - I don't know and don't want to know why they done this (in general all writers from Scy-Fy Channel are the worst writers that I've seen).

The sound effects and background music you don't even realize if they were good or not, since they are generic, and in a absolute background in the movie.

At the end, this is a very bad choice of movie, even to watch if there's nothing interesting in the TV: I had the displeasure of watching it in 720p.

I'd advise to stay away from the Jabberwock - my score: 2,0 / 10,0.
