Although the film may be too violent for kids younger than 10 and too storybook for teens, it is a tale of mythic pretensions and can be quite stunning.

The story is tedious, noisy and banal. It is also rather dark and convoluted for children, though it does have the familiar bombast of a video game.

There isn't enough action for older children, or silly humor for younger ones; even at an hour-and-a-half, the film feels padded, and it's going to feel even slower to audiences amped up on blood-red Icees and molar-cracking Nonpareils.

A dull retread. ... Not even the film's easily enchanted target audience -- that is, children -- are likely to stay under the spell for long.

How do you go ten years and not notice how lousy your script is?

An unimaginative plot with dull characters that aren't as endearing or memorable as they could have been.
