A group of elementary-school children in small-town Georgia form a special club with the goal of becoming as wise as Solomon. Almost before they begin, however, they stumble upon a man in the woods who is speaking in strange voices--and he sounds dangerous! They immediately take it upon themselves to investigate and soon find themselves in trouble. Written by
The story idea may have been great. The execution just didn't work.
Thought this would be a cute movie to share with my kids ages 10 and 12. Was really looking forward to the healthy moral and value features so many of today's films omit. Sadly the film was soooooo very slow that my children grew bored in the first 15 minutes. Comments I heard were "Kids don't really think this way at all" and "parents don't really speak this way" and "How come all these kids run around without any supervision ever" I admit, I too.. found many scenes very unrealistic and hard to swallow, lol. The film was cheesy with a CAPITAL "C" and had a cultish feel to it. As if, perhaps, some small town, narrow minded church filmed each scene using only non professional actors ( members of their own congregation ) themselves with messages or ideas they WISH were reality in today's world. It was completely unbelievable and the lines were very forced. In all honesty we turned it off and found an alternate film to watch that actually entertained us.
The story idea may have been great. The execution just didn't work. Perhaps this film was created for a very very young Sunday school/church camp audience? Definitely not for mainstream public viewing.
