A nice drama / fantasy movie.
22 April 2015 | by paikiaSee all my reviews

While obviously not a masterpiece on the scale of The Princess Bride or The Never-ending Story, which were referenced in other reviews, Legends Of Nethiah does, in itself, provide a pleasant watching experience. The core of the story is quite basic - a kid who has to deal with his parents' divorce, and finds refuge in his grandfather's stories. Both Jared Young (Gabriel) and Robert Picardo (the grandfather) seem to give great performances, and on a simple, yet well-written movie like this, it's all I need.

I strongly disagree with the negative reviews this movie received here. It's definitely worth watching, in my opinion!
