Storyline

Since as far back as Kyle and Evie Preston can remember, their grandmother told fantastical tales about elves who had been trapped underground by giants for thousands of years. Now grandmother is gone, and the siblings are surprised to discover that they have inherited a decrepit gold mine and a family home they never even knew existed. Upon discovering that grandmother's far fetched stories have a bizarre basis in reality and that by freeing the fairies from the mine they will discover a cure for their terminally ill father (Bernsen), Kyle and Evie race against time to free the trapped fairies and save their father's life.

Not as bad as you've read here...

OK, I've seen much worse from Malcolm McDowell in recent times. This is no classic, it is in fact an "ok" kids movie. I think that's who it was aimed at... "kids". The story at the beginning was not "unintelligible, I understood it easily. The reason for the bamboos and palm trees in the English forest is because it was filmed in South Africa, but set on the Isle of Man, a small island in the Irish Sea between Ireland and Britain. The origin of the island is explained in the story at the beginning. Anyway, it will not strain your brain, but you also won't be enticed to run to your local video store to buy a copy. But the kids might like it.
