Editorial Reviews

The final chapter in the popular film trilogy stars Jason James Richter (Free Willy) as Bastian, a teenager whose life is turned upside down when his father remarries.
On his first day at a new school, Bastian is chased by a vicious gang called the Nasties, led by Slip (Jack Black, Gullivers Travels). Bastian hides in the library where he finds a magic book that writes itself according to the imagination of the reader. To escape the Nasties (and his troubles at home), Bastian wishes himself into Fantasia, the storybooks phantasmic world of incredible creatures. Its here, away from the pressures of the real world, that Bastian thinks hes safe. But when the Nasties take control of the book, his Fantasian friends get stuck on Earth, and its up to Bastian to save them.

I got this movie because I was a big fan of the first two, and I expected this one to be great. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. This movie should never have start production. It is geared too much toward little kids, but I doubt even little kids would be amused by it. The plot has Bastian returning to Fantasia to escape "The Nasties", which is some sort of gang. The Fantasia in this movie is very different from the one in the first two. It looks a lot less inviting, and they really screwed up all the beauty that Fantasia possessed in the first two movies. They turn the Childlike Empress into a joke, who even contemplates using the Auryn to go shopping! Michael Ende would die of shame if he were still alive. They turned his wonderful idea into one big joke. This movie should never have seen the light of day.

This movie was so horrible, I was going to sell it in a yard sale. Then I thought... 'that means it will be floating around somewhere else in the world." So I decided to throw it away, then thought 'what if someone goes dumpster-diving, takes it, and watches it?" I couldn't live with that! So, I burned it. Bad for the environment, yet good for the general population. The only thing RIGHT about it was that the Rock Biter had the correct, book-version of the name. STILL, if I wanted Cheese, I would have grabbed a bag of Doritos. Mmm... Doritos. ::Walks away to find the Doritos::

The first movie was awesome. The second one was ok. This one is just embarrassing. The only cool things about this movie are that you get to see Jack Black play a school bully, and hear Rock Biter sing "Born to be Wild". Other than that, this is a total waste of time.

Oh, and if they're going to have a different kid play Bastian in every movie, they could at least make some effort to have them look somewhat alike. They all look completely different. He might as well have been black in one of them.

Bad trilogy. Very bad. Just go with the first one, it's the best.

I was and still am a fan of the Neverending Story plot. It has always given me an interesting view of life. I was one of those people who were anxious to see TNES 3 when it came out. Sadly, enough, my expectations weren't met. What in heavens name happened? No more Atreyu? or Artax? Whatever happened to the senior councellor of the child-like empress? Why was he replaced with someone who has a bid head? Why is the child-like empress not a child? I have many more questions about this movie. Falkor, come on now, the lovable luck dragon who always had words of encouragement became dumb. No offense to the creators of the movie but sophomoric/slapstick comedy don't work well with the TNES. Indeed a great dissappointment.

The first Neverending Story was and is one of my favorite movies ever made, I can't get enough of it. After the second one came out they messed everything up and this third one is a joke, a disgrace and an insult to NES fans everywhere. First of all the book and the auryn look nothing like the original. Atreyu isn't in the film nor is he mentioned. The rock biter has shrunk, there is a stupid talking tree and poor Falkor looks like he's going to die off! I swear I think the people that made this movie didn't even bother to watch the original. The Rock Biter singing "Born To Be Wild?" You've got to be kidding me?! They should never have made any sequels to this movie unless the original actors, writers and directors were in it. They should have just left well enough alone. Like they say "If it aint broke, don't fix it" I wouldn't spend 5 cents on this movie nevermind wasting [$$] on the DVD.

Just saw this movie on WAM today 4/10/04. Can't believe that someone didn't stop production on this film EARLY in the making. What a waste. Hope to have better luck with the "Tales" series. Love the first two from the original series... stick with those. This movie lacks Heart. Don't really care that the special effects are poor in any movie that has genuine feeling. I can't imagine it taking long (possibly a week) to make this film. BOO!

This movie is a dishoner not only to The Neverending Story but to Michael Ende himself. He didn't even like the original movie, imagine what he would think of this trash. This movie lacks good acting, a decent plot, decent special effects, and consistancy with the first two. The Auryn is some ugly twisted black thing that looks NOTHING like in the first two nor does it have even a SLIGHT resemblence to the one in the book. Non of the characters appear as they did in the first two, and Falkor has been turned in to a stupid scardy cat. Heck, the rock biter has a musical number and a wife with a heavy Russian accent if that gives you ANY clue as to how utterly BAD this movie is. The third installment is a shame for so many reasons. It doesn't fit the style or feel of the first two, and it also prevents there from being a 4th. What they need to do is scrap this entire movie and make a better NES 3. I will NOT be purchasing this movie in any form, I can promise you that. Stick with the original Movie, and the Tales From The Neverending Story series, those are the best we have gotten so far.
