My childhood dream, finally come true!
17 April 2012 | by crunk_juice19See all my reviews

I love original The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time video game and beat it when I was six years old. When I was that age, I wanted an LoZ movie so bad. I had dreams about it and everything!

I waited for this movie for 4-6 years, following it almost every step of the way, and it finally paid off. I saw this, and it was one of the happiest moments of my life!

And when Nintendo shut it down, I was ruined. That was a dark day :(

But, not to fear: it's back on YouTube, you can download it in all kinds of places, I have it on my MP3, everyone's happy.

I don't get why some people hated this movie. It's better than any crap by Uwe "Toilet" Boll! This is the best video game adapted movie of all time.

Now, you do have to approach this movie with an open mind: it's an independent movie. But think about it, the fact that a bunch of college kids in Atlanta, Georgia (with no money) got together, got all their buddies to be in it (with no money) and managed to make this awesome movie that's better than any video game movie out there (with no money), is pretty freaking cool. Yes, there are some pretty fake looking things (The Wig of Time) but if you use a little imagination, you too will realize the awesomeness.

Here's the summary (basically the same as Ocarina of Time, but with a few changes) - Link is a young boy being raised by the Kokiri. The Deku Tree's final dying message to Link is that he must fulfill his destiny: leave the Kokiri Forest, meet the Princess of Destiny (Zelda), defeat the Gerudo sorcerer Ganondorf, the Prince of Darkness, and save all of Hyrule. That's the most basic, Reader's Digest version of it.

So in conclusion, if you are a Legend of Zelda fan, and won't whine about every little detail from the game not being in the movie (non-pointy ears, a dress being a different color, etc.), and keep an open mind, The Hero of Time will fulfill every childhood fantasy and joy you had when you first played Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64 (gold cartridge for the win!!).
