Well, I have a new movie to add to my list of bad movies that I rather enjoy.

The narrator kills this movie. Imagine Meerkat Manor, but with people. There is some dialogue, and a couple pretty decent action sequences, too. The problem is that the movie has no quiet time, no emotional time, no character building time. Just when you think that there is going to be some sort of "moment", the narrator breaks in with a comment.

"D'Ley knew that he must ...."


If they had yanked the narrator, and allowed the characters and plot to develop on their own, it would have been good, I think. Maybe.

There was an alternate ending which actually showed the narrator talking to a group of children, passing along the story. If the movie had started with that, and then the narrator faded out until the very end, that could have been good, too.

But overall, it was cheesy and silly. It was bad. I loved it.

Rating: 2.5 of 5 sporks
