A pleasant surprise
I just saw this on SciFi channel, and normally I have contempt for most movies that play on that channel. But THIS one was enjoyable to watch. Good, sincere performances without the usual annoying clichés that infect most scifi CGI-filled fantasy films.
Good cast has fun with the story.
On the downside, there is some bad editing, cheesy CGI and everything is a bit rushed to speed towards the climactic battle. Still, it is a very ambitious piece, with action, humor and romance.
Fun for the whole family, I can forgive the technical glitches. This has ambition like Lord of the Rings, action that sort of equals Eragon but with well written characters who are as fun to watch as those of Princess Bride.
