Disappointing
22 June 1999 | by mermattSee all my reviews

The plot is mildly interesting, but the film sadly lacks in genuine fantasy and imagination. Though it has a good cast, there is the typical cop-out of talking ABOUT mermaids and mermen but never having any -- just humans who are supposed to be the "real" merfolk.

The Disney Channel film THE THIRTEENTH YEAR did a much better job of handling the same subject matter and did not skim on costuming and special FX. This film, on the other hand, comes across as the low-budget version of the same story. Too bad. It could have been so much better.
