The writing on the chalk board in the classroom is a portion of the poem "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell" by William Blake and reads, "Once meek, and in a perilous path/ The just man kept his course along/ The vale of death./ Roses are planted where thorns grow./ And on the barren heath/ Sing the honey bees."

When Edward and Willow meet near the remnants of the old stone building, he is clearly shown not wearing his sidearm as he stands near an open window; when he and Willow return to her daughter's room he is wearing his sidearm. There were other instances of the on again-off again sidearm, but that is the most obvious. See more »

Many scenes were cut from the Theatrical Release to get an MPAA rating of PG-13. The Unrated DVD Release adds those scenes back in, however, over 4 minutes of deleted footage is still missing from this version and has never been released publicly. See more »
This has got to be one of the worst fillums I've ever seen and I've seen a few. It is slow, boring, amateurish - not even consistent within its own simplistic reading of the plot. The actors do not act. I can't blame them - they have been given a script of such utter banality all they can do is trudge through it with a pain behind their eyes which has nothing to do with the evil goings on in SummersIsle.
There is not one moment in this film that rings true - not an honest line nor a single instant where one is moved. The Nicholas Cage character is so badly drawn that one feels not a smidgeon of compassion for him through all his tribulations. I have no doubt that I was seeing a suffering man up there but it was Nicholas Cage fully aware of the fact that he was in the worst movie of his entire career.
