Great for kids, but this 1988 classic is a cheesefest for adults
on July 18, 2015
The good news is the bluray transfer quality is excellent and back in 1988 I would have loved this movie. However, it doesn't hold up today. The dialogue and special effects are corny and every element about it is cliché. It made me laugh, but not always for the right reasons. That said, the movie plays very much like a cartoon come to life. Young kids will love it. As I like fantasy movies, I found it entertaining for awhile for what it was, but it eventually exceeded my cheese threshold.
