All I can say is this had a couple decent parts but could have been much better with an understandable plot that made any kind of sense and some serious acting improvement. One Star!
The cover of the DVD seduced us to rent it, but the film is laugh-out-loud BAD throughout. The film was obviously a VERY, VERY LOW BUDGET attempt to capitalize on the popularity of Harry Potter, but without any of the charm, character development, dialogue, actors, or the special effects budget of the Potter films.
The children in the film are stiff and unnatural, and the adults are even MORE stiff and unnatural. The acting is just plain terrible, but who can help it with dialogue like this? Mr. Roddy Piper is actually the only one with any acting chops whatsoever in the film...if that tells you anything.
Even the kids (7 & 10) laughed out loud at the poor execution of parts of the film- it became fun to watch only for making fun of how poorly it was done.
The story itself actually seems rather original...if you can follow it! It's a convoluted and confusing mess about Viking runes and a river dragon and being born on November 11th. Some stand out dialogue includes:
"All I can tell you about the key is...it's the key."
"There is an air of promise in the air. Can you feel it?"
On the bright side, the story itself was good. The constant revelation of good morals and educational enlightenment was great for a young audience. I think some of it was a bit overdone, but since it's geared towards kids, I doubt they'll notice.
