This youth fantasy feature contains amazing adventures, emotion, imagination and impressive production values. It takes parts here and there from C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, J.R.R Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and J.K Rowling's Harry Potter. Breathtaking ending confrontation between the dark and light forces with outstanding array of special effects and full of witchcraft and wizardry abound. It's lavishly produced about 45 million dollars though was a flop at the box office. Spectacular production design filmed on location in Romania and adding a luxurious cinematography by Joel Ransom. Emotive and stirring musical score by Christophe Beck. The tale is based on Susan Cooper novel and screenplay by John Hodge(Transporting). The motion picture picture is regularly paced by David L Cunningham but contains some flaws and gaps. Cunningham is a good director as TV movie(Little house on the prairie,The path to P/1) as cinema(To end all wars, After).
