The small waterfall at start of movie is "Mermaids Cave" in Megalong Valley though oddly gets no mention in the credits.
I used to play there 60 years ago when visiting relatives who owned Megalong Valley Tearooms. See more »
Firstly, it's a kids film. Just remind yourself of that when you watch it.My 10 and 13 year olds loved it.
I did not. The characters were annoying and miscast.
Javier Torres (played by Nicholas Andrianakos) was a useless character. Probably the hunk character for the girls, but I was hoping he would be killed off.
Owen Clarke (played by Leigh Joel Scott) looked like a 30 year old guy. At least he knew things that helped.
Kaylee Liu (played by Deborah An) was the arty type who 'grew up'. Yawn.
Caitlin Fisher (played by Gabi Sproule) was the bimboesque girl that grew a backbone. She was the most interesting.
Zoe Caldera (played by Lauren Esposito) is the lead character. Funny that her sister/mother is the Executive Producer and she is the co-producer. I think another relative is the 'best boy'. Her accent ranged from Australian to American, depending on the scene.
Once you resign to the fact that things don't make a heap of sense, feel free to enjoy the special effects, because boy I had a hard time understanding the flow of the story.
The best part was I got a choc-top ice cream!
