it kinda can't quite decide if it's trying to be a children's/family/fantasy film or something more deep & serious (sinister?). I found it kinda interesting & entertaining, but I'm guessing it struggled to find a wide audience.
Much of it was really beyond what a young crowd could handle and at other times it was too kiddie for a young adult crowd to appreciate.
some of the acting and screenplay were a bit dodgey, but the young girl was really good.
the visual effects were a real highlight!
