Fun Fantasy film with a simple storyline and some great acting by its cast. A lot has been said about Ray Harryhausen's special effects and they are dated even by 80s standards, but that does add to the charm of the film.
**a note to the parents for the youngsters** - the film is rated PG, but it should technically be rated PG-13 by todays ratings standards. It does have a couple scenes of nudity and the violence albeit fantasy is still a little scary & intense. Just a brief warning.
