With all the money that must have been spent it deserved a better director
14 April 2006 | by david-mayerSee all my reviews

What a waste of such a good cast. My media students could have directed it better. It is like lord of the rings without the lord or the rings. The script is flaccid and slow. The acting feels like they are completing a contractual obligation. The story line is of course stolen from star wars (she is your Mother Luke) And just who is fighting who? There must be a dozen different accents from English, to Canadian,Scottish, Nordic? The special effects are not up to the 21st century. This could have been filmed just as cleverly at the time of Bewitched(TV 1964). Actually I think I was more impressed by the special effects in that. The shaky camera work is annoying. I presume it was edited for TV. I would hate to watch it on a large screen. The choppy editing made me feel ill most of the time. And what a great idea putting Miranda's voice through vocoder. It does not work at all. I think someone should re-dub this as a comedy.
