If the narrative is unsteady, the acting is even shakier.
This exotic little New Zealand film about an outcast island boy is full of surprises that will make even the grumpiest viewer crack a smile.
The movie's G rating, and its message that even the roughest of edges can be smoothed away to reveal a wonderful person, make for ideal family entertainment, as long as you can get past the corniness.
Earnest but amateurish tween fairy tale set in South Seas.
...there's not much here to keep older viewers engaged.
The whole affair comes off as an after-school special filmed in the rainforest.
There's no adventure or fun anywhere in Johnny Lingo, which is odd because this is kid friendly fare.
Those who want a similarly-themed film need look no further than 'Whale Rider,' just as rich visually and in spirit-and a superior movie in every aspect.
Beyond-hackneyed dialogue helps Ramirez convey the (mistaken?) impression that none of his featured players can act. Throw in a dramatic arc that's practically a flat line and you'll know how long 91 minutes can feel.
Despite being longer, bigger, and more expensive, the new Legend of Johnny Lingo does little to improve on the first.
[The film] manages to overcome its weaknesses -- and its ancestry as a famously cornball Brigham Young University-produced short -- with gentle humor and sweetness.
It's not a bad film, and it has a certain sweetness to it. It's just so unnecessary, that's all.
