It's amazing this movie took in as much as it did. I remember when it was nothing but hype about Disney making a movie based on one of their rides. First thought: What on earth are they thinking? Then I saw the teaser trailers. Something about walking skeletons. Second thought: Ack! Then I saw more commercials and found hints of what looked like a feasible plot. Then I saw the movie. Whoops! Where did that plot go? Running on automatic and way off a cliff. Dull, uninteresting characters. Unintelligent plot contrivances. No sense of excitement or intensity. I'm only sparing this movie from a goose egg because I've seen movies far worse. But this movie is even worse than Muppet Treasure Island.
Edit(3/16/05) An upset fan has convinced me to give this movie a fairer rating. Well like I said. This isn't the worst movie I've ever seen. You've got to give the creators points for trying. At least the fight scenes were okay. But I found it hard to care about any of the characters, especially since those affected by the curse couldn't die. And just how COULD Jack find his way with a broken compass? Or maybe I'm thinking too hard. At any rate, the one movie that really DOES deserve a 1 is Charlie's Angels, but I'll reserve that for another entry.
