No consensus yet.
So freaking stupid...but that's exactly the point lol.
Wow. Grim, indeed.
The acting is atrocious. Ferrigno and relatively unknown actor Nemes were the best performers of the bunch. Van Dien has the skill and delivery of William Shatner which wasn't remotely appropriate for his role. The sets and/or script were not thought out clearly -- for example, the "Mirror, mirror on the wall" is not, in fact, on the wall -- which is painfully obvious during the recitation of the famous incantation.
Locations were overused with lazy camera work. The opening scene's fairlyland throne room is shot in the de-consecrated St. Vibiana's Cathedral in downtown Los Angeles, which has since been turned into an event venue for public hire. Camera angles are needlessly shot upward repeatedly showing the event lighting machines in the rafters, utterly destroying the illusion of fairlyland. Poor attention to detail by the director.
On the other hand, the story is innovative and interesting, even if the dialogue is stupid. The lighting is fascinating throughout, although that may be more by happenstance than design. The use of CGI was impressive for what appears to be a small budget film. And it is nice to see Dylan Vox involved in a project that doesn't boarder on porn or late night Logo fare.
For a junk movie, it's pretty well done -- but it's still firmly in the "junk" movie category.
