Usually I cringe at a film released by Asylum, but found this a notch above their standard releases of poor directing and bad editing. Quite a family affair film for Casper Van Dien's directing debut. Casper, his wife Catherine Oxenberg, along with daughters Grace, Maya and Celeste Van Dien appeared in the film. While some actors appeared stiff there were a few that stood out doing a decent job like Finn Jones, the hero, Gil Kolirin, the strong right hand and Edward French who really seemed to enjoy his role as the bad boy prince. Grace Van Dien also did a good job as the Sleeping Beauty. For a low budget film it faired better than expected.

Before the opening credits you will see headlights of a car on a road behind the evil queen. After the credits you will see tracker tracks along the dirt road and men building an already completed brick wall.

I was, VERY MUCH, reminded of the 1980's version of "The Clash of the Titans", in Special Effects, Acting AND Storyline. Not all, but most of the acting was awful, which is always possible to eek past if the writing is any good and the writing wasn't all bad... inconsistent, but not all bad. The special effects were somewhat sophomoric... again... a pass may be given in that I really loved the 80's version of The Clash of the Titans in spite of it. I told myself it was a little retro in that respect and rather an accidental, if not deliberate homage to Harryhausen. Whether or not it was didn't matter, in that is what I told myself throughout the movie and without that thought to cajole me along, I think I would have liked it much less. The zombies... were the worst of the bunch right after royal mama and papa's acting. Again, I made allowances as ... well... zombies are vacant so... why shouldn't their acting be as well? There is quite a bit of violence. And, often, very graphic, I wouldn't recommend it for young children. Aside from some of the 'acting', the directing seemed to be this movie's biggest problem. Some scenes were very choppy. Sadly, parts which would have been key to the story must have lay waste on the cutting room floor. There was often confusion during key dialogue. Someone would be talking but you never knew who was saying what as the camera was hardly ever on the person talking, during the castle siege. The story was certainly an interesting take on the classic. I find the introduction of zombies to be a new one on me... but current with this generation's trend toward fixation on them... so I get it. I did find it a bit lacking in the 'making sense' department. Certain things the baddie was capable of, in the end, could have...Read more ›

It was okay, definitely different than any Sleeping Beauty I have seen. I liked how the characters changed along the way. I talked friends into watching it the next night. 'I don't remember there being zombies in Sleeping Beauty! ' One needs to suspend reality when watching something like this. Accept that within this hour and a half that "it" is reality and not pick things apart. This is why I don't watch out-and-out horror movies

Mediocre CG Animation, zombies were pathetic, relies on audience to be familiar with the story. Mildly entertaining, but certainly would not recommend anyone actually pay for it, but if you have prime and have a few minutes to burn then pour a drink and turn it on.

This version of Sleeping Beauty has a lot going for it. The castle where it is filmed in hauntingly beautiful and interesting. Other scenes are also nicely filmed. The music background is very good. The plot is straight forward. The new baby is cursed, the fairies put a protective spell on the baby, then 16 years later the princess pricks her finger on a spindle, she and the kingdom fall into a slumber, and the wicked witch rules, ect.... There are some fun twists. The princess writes letters before she is cursed and birds carry them off. One hundred years later those notes are found by a wiping boy who then is part of a band of adventurers who go to the castle. The acting is pretty good. Grace Van Dien is great as the princess. Maya Van Dien plays a young girl who survives inside the cursed castle (reminded me of Newt from the Alien series). The Newt character was especially well acted and very interesting. Michael York as the narrator was a nice touch. Casper Van Dein's role is smaller than I expected. The only real downside I saw was the handheld camera filming for some of the fight scenes. I personally dislike handheld filming styles, but here it was only used rarely and therefore did not ruin the whole movie. Overall a solid and fun action adventure movie. A- rating from me.

This live action version is not all bad as long as one goes in not expecting much. The visual effects are fairly decent, though it was a little difficult to tell what at least one creature was supposed to be. The acting feels forced or stilted at times. The evil fairy and queen look related. While the bad boy Prince and his cohorts are nasty in an occasionally uncomfortable way. There is also a scholar and the whipping boy, who also is a Prince, but a captured one, who in a group of six set out to wake the sleeping beauty and gain a kingdom.
I didn't care for all the zombies the evil fairy kept waking and creating. It got old quickly. Nor did I like the way the evil fairy simply got banished again before reappearing at the very end of the movie. Someone should have just killed her and let the end be a happy one not the uncertain one the film leaves one with.
