More or less a Young Adults film, or those into The same sort of Magic as that displayed in harry Potter with a little more action. I am told this is based on a book series and that the book series is much better then the film. The Evil One was some of the best special effects until the last scene. Its quite long almost 3 hrs, and I think it was made for Sci-Fi Channel thought I am not sure of this. Its a good rental, but not a DVD I would go out and buy unless found at a pawn shop for $3.00 or less. 3 Stars is best I can give this one.

Enchanting plot and re-watchable, definately. Interesting animation but unfortunately the dubbing and voice actors let it down considerably. I mean really, is that how they speak? But good none the less.

Well, I haven't read any of the books so I didn't quite know what to expect from this, but when I saw it I can only say I got the same bad shrill as when I saw the Eragon movie. This mini-series is slightly better though, but still suffers from bad writing and cheesy acting, and some scenes are like pure rip-offs from Harry Potter. It's still worth a watch though if you're into the fantasy genre. Just don't expect any quality la Lord of The Rings ;-)
