I took my 4 year old son to see this. He absolutly loved this movie. My son loves watching thrilling movies, he even wanted to watch hostel 2...(his cousin let him while I was at work-never again) But I couldn't take my 5 year old daughter-she HATES anything scary. But my son loved it, it kept me entertained, I liked it. Thought the little monster in the pirate suit was weird, but It was a good movie! (and to people who don't like "misbehavior" during their movies, shouldn't go to one thats made for kids...HELLO! What'd you expect??)

This movie intertwined action and thrills in a very intersting way. This is a must see for all children who like scary movies

Good story line. Tense and definitely scary for children 8 and under, but enjoyable and engrossing. I they like legends of good and evil with well drawn characters and surroundings to match the mood of the moment, even adults can enjoy this movie. In fact, if the kids wanted to go again, I would enjoy taking them.

Too Old...

I think I have reached some magical age where a part of my brain just died.

This movie was a Nickelodeon venture and I know now why I stopped watching that channel at a young age. Every character in this movie, as with most of Nickelodeon's worlds are hopped up on some kind of happy juice that grants unbelievabel levels of energy and emotional stimulation at the sacrifice of ones attention span. "Oh my lord a goblin!" Followed by a yelp, then quickly to a calm fearless focus to the kid explaining the situation. I really dont' know. If I saw a mass of goblins attacking my house I'd most likely flip out a bit longer and louder not giving my kid a chance to talk.

Sure its suppose to be a warm, cute little adventure, and I am sure kids will love it. It just seemed liek Nickelodeon's cheap harry potter knock-off.

That's my take, I really wish they hadn't rushed everything and maybe roughed up some of the "sharper" bits. More claws, more teeth, more real danger. Hell one ounce of honest emotion from any one character would have helped.

Andrew McCarth and Nick Nolte? Wtf?

For being a kids movie this was really cute, but thats just this is really just a movie for children. There is not much to keep the attention of someone over the age of 14, except the animation which was visually stunning.

Bring the kids, they will laugh at the goblin with the pirate hat even if you don't

Strictly for young children. I had high hopes after viewing the previews and posters, longing for some Lord of the Ring high tech FX and sets. Very disappointing and unless you have a 5 year old child to bring it misses the mark by a mile.

A few moments in the film were beautiful, the end scene with the actress from Avalon, and the scene with the flower fairies were done well.

Having a Goblin dressed up as a pirate reduced it all to a 5 year old level and lost most of the audience immediately.

Seperate Note:
Each in theater experience seems to be getting worse and worse with movie attendance down due to people being fed up with the talking during the move and misbehavior in the audience ruining each movie.

Theater owners have got to provide better movie security instead of an usher walking in once every hour for 15 seconds. It is getting to the point that they have to be much more vigilant to prevent all the noise coming into the theater itself. Almost impossible to concentrate on any film.

People behave as if they are in their own living room. Home entertainment centers will close theaters if the in house movie theater security does not improve.
