The original NeverEnding Story movie was a masterpiece. A complete work of art. I remember watching that movie when I was a kid, it amazed me. I watch today, and it amazes me how it still draws me into that story so easily. In my opinion, it is a pure fantasy world with no flaws, in acting, in plot, in direction, in visuals; the characters are all wonderfully original and well played.

*sigh* Now...to the sequel.

Besides the fact that every single character was recast (aside from the bookkeeper?), and besides the fact that every character has a brand new personality which contradicts how they were in the first movie. Besides the fact that Bastian had brown hair in the first movie, and now all of a sudden he has blonde hair. Apart from the fact that Bastian's dad has quite the receding hairline in the first movie, and now, in the sequel, where'd that full head of hair come from? Aside from the fact that Falcor turned stupid for something reason. Apart from the fact that Atreyu, the brave warrior in the first movie, turns into a confused sidekick that can only speak broken english now...

*sigh* aside from all of that...

The thing that gets me the most, throughout the sequel they call the Empress, "The Child-like Empress"... *sigh*

...She is not child-like; she is, in fact, just a child! "Child-Empress"!!!

The magic that was the first movie disappeared in the second. I think the thing that sets the movies apart the most, a thing that hurts the sequel quite a bit, is the fact that we have to views of the story, in the original, Bastian's point of view as he reads the book, and then Atreyu's and the others view from inside the story.

With the NeverEnding Story II, there is no outside view.

OK, let's admit it. This movie isn't half bad. You should all know that the first movie (The NeverEnding Story) is a ton better, and the third movie (The NeverEnding Story III - Escape From Fantasia) STINKS!!! But on the subject of this movie, I would say I enjoy watching it from time to time, and that in and of itself makes the movie worthwhile. Do I feel it is worthy of the being in league with the NeverEnding Story saga??? In a way. It somewhat follows the book after chapter M (#13), the second half. However, this movie has some obvious faults. For one, the atmosphere of the movie is close to neither the first movie (dark, depressing, but really good) nor the book (intelligent, witty, amazing). I liked Jonathan Brandis (Bastian) but not Kenny Morrison (Atreyu). The chick who played the Childlike Empress, in my mind, was not right for the part at all. On the plus side, I thought Xayide was excelently portrayed: Very sinister and evil but clever. The status of Bastian's relationship to his father was more prevalent, and made more sweet. (A[...])
This movie was my first NeverEnding Story "experience" and it was good enough to interest me in the first movie and on to the book.
By the way, do not waste your precious time in viewing the piece of crud known as The NeverEnding Story III - Escape From Fantasia. It stinks.
That is all. Thank you and fare well.

The first movie is a great movie that every child and any adult with a love for Tolkien, LeGuin, C.S. Lewis will feel compelled to see. The second movie has no chivalry, no mystery no romance, and I wish my children had not seen it, to interfere and dilute the powerful feelings and lessons of the first. The allegory of the first is far superior to the second. I understand the third is even worse.

The Neverending Story has been a childhood staple for many years. To me, it's my favourite movie from my childhood. When the second movie came out, I was curious, but seeing how it is involved with The Neverending Story, I gave it a try. To be honest, the movie is actually quite good. This time around Jonathan Brandis (Ladybugs, Seaquest DSV) puts on the shoes as our hero Bastien. Here, Bastien must return to Fantasia to stop the evil Xayide from taking over the land. In his return he rejoins his friends Rock Biter, Atreyu, and of course Falcor. He even encounters new Fantasianites that either aid/delay Bastien in his journey. The movie is full of adventure, great scenery, strong characters and even a few life-lessons. In terms of the DVD treatment, an excellent transfer has taken place. You are able to get the full-screen or widescreen option on a two-sided disc, along with the movie trailer, and even Bastien's Word Challenge, which is a different, but nice addition to the disc. All in all, The Neverending II is a decent movie that helps to continue the saga of the adventues of Bastien. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a nice adventure flick that's easy to follow, or just wants a watch a movie that can be enjoyed by all ages.

A Kid's Review on May 8, 2006
Format: DVD
I am a huge Neverending Story fan. I have read the book many times and the movie is pretty good, too. The problem is that the first movie only tells half of the story. So imagine how excited I was to find that there was the second one! And imagine my disappointment to find out it really stunk! It had different characters, different story.. nothing was the same. Stick with the book and the first movie!
