Branded as a 'nerd' and harassed by the school bully, 12-year-old Arthur is rescued by a magical troll alchemist but is soon able to return the favor. Arthur's loving mom, who struggles to keep her devious ex-husband from gaining custody of Arthur, dismisses her son's 'fantasies' until she realizes their all-too-real immediate danger and joins forces with Arthur, the troll, the Knights of the Square Table (Arthur's pals Natalie and Tim), and Shane the washed-up inventor of a trading card game. Together, they hope to conquer a dragon and the wicked vice-principal who threaten civilization. Written by RA/AL

Kinda dumb... But amusing!
4 October 2014 | by alan-witteSee all my reviews

OK, so it ain't 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'... Heck, it isn't even 'How to Train Your Dragon' or 'Monster House'!...

What it is, however, despite the awful CGI and campy production (which may actually be a "plus")... This movie is just plain fun for children or any adult who ever played a "Trading Card" game in a previous life.

(I actually was not one of them) ...or any other adult who can suspend dis-believability for the sake of their geek-children.

'Kids, these days! :-)

IMDb requires the following lines to be a 'Legitimate' posting: "Why does IMDb" "Require me to post 10 lines of text" "When I thought I had adequetly reviewed this movie" "In less...?"
