Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A movie that should've been made shortly after its source material -- Susan Cooper's Newbery winner -- debuted in 1973. As is, it feels entirely too generic to work today.
Rotten: The movie ultimately emerges as a lackluster tale of teenage empowerment and doesn't fully conjure the requisite sense of magical escape necessary to truly captivate and immerse us in the tale.
Rotten: Cooper presented this rather basic good/evil mythos in more low-key, atmospheric form than the film allows, leaving thesps (particularly McShane) having to poker-face their way through lines like, 'The future of the human race rests on you!'
Rotten: Ludwig, a relative unknown with some TV and film experience, is awfully cute, but lacks the needed gravitas and charm to turn Will into more than a caricature.
This is a must own movie. This movie should be able to buy and rent. This a film the whole family will enjoy.
i thought this movie was fantastic. rent it! its awesome!
For a fantasy tale it was not bad at all. Kids would enjoy this one and adults too.
