Did You Know?

It was originally rated PG for "some scary moments", but the filmmakers trimmed it down to a PG-rating, this time for "mild perilous action", so that it wouldn't be frightening to children as it did to director Richard Rich's "The Black Cauldron" in 1985.See more »

This sucks big time, 24 December 2013
Author: sysclp from Canada

The cgi animation is so pitiful it is painful to watch and Odette's eyes come off as really creepy. The songs are OK but don't mesh well with the medieval setting since they are more hip hop and R&B styled. It was barely tolerable as background noise but if I tried to watch it I quickly wanted to go do something else. I really can't find anything to recommend about it other than to skip it.

I watched it on The Movie Network in Canada for free which was the only reason I tortured myself with this dreck. For a 2012 movie, the animation was like a really bad video game from several years ago. I doubt even small children would enjoy this pitiful money grab.
