Worth the nostalgia
21 September 2015 | by jimfoghornSee all my reviews

I loved this movie. The gore was traditional non-CG and had a great 80's feel to it.

Brought me back to the good times of Never ending story memories. This movie made me really feel for the characters, and something I would love to share with friends.

My vote is to watch this and you'll find yourself smiling and grinning at the light hearted fun with serious under-tones.

Although they barely touched on the back story of what happened to the world, we kind of get the side notes of what happened. But the story itself wasn't about how civilization got there, but focuses on the views of the innocent main character. I fell in love with the co-star Apple, even with her annoying happy go lucky cartoon behavior. Definitely stole the show.
