Adults might find this overly sentimental... though it's ideal viewing for kids -- informative, visually impressive, and generous in its worldview.

Director Andrew Mudge's expansive film combines death, romance, poverty, mysticism, philosophy and friendship while holding steadfast to its realism; it sticks with you.

Most significantly, Kingdom's heartfelt performances and director Mudge's competent direction will keep you engaged through the duration.

The resolution proves heartfelt and touching, and if the script sometimes waxes too mystical for its own good, the film's ultimately so genuine it's hard to resist.

Were it not for the novel USP of its setting, The Forgotten Kingdom would be classifiable as entirely unoriginal.
