Nothing touches the original, but this sequel is still good children's viewing.

Okay, I agree since the first one had only half the book a sequel was acceptable, but this wasn't.

Audience Reviews for The NeverEnding Story III


This is ironically the last of the neverending story movies. It has some of the same creatures as the others, but the major actors and characters are extremely different and changed from the original. I wouldn't recommend this movie.

So bad. Technically this is the second half of the book, but they really took a budget cut (and cast and crew cut) on this one.

Curtis Lilly

Super Reviewer

This movie was like a terrible Saturday morning Network TV exploitation of the "NeverEnding Story" name. Horrible movie. The point of the "NeverEnding Story" series was to immerse us in fantasy, but the bozos who produced this movie thought they'd bring the Fantasia creatures to our world instead, making it far less interesting.
