Is it a childhood fantasy film?

In the same genre as Golden Compass or Chronicles of Narnia? ((Not comparing the three, just asking if theyre in the same genre - before anyone gets any discussion ideas))

Because I've been wondering about this movie as well - I enjoy films like the aforementioned duo. Just need a little more reassurance.

It certainly doesn't have the scope/scale of something like Narnia.

It's a worthy film for viewing with your family.

Several months ago, I downloaded the preview from the PS Store. From what I saw in 1080p, this movie will look incredible on blu-ray.

My son didn't fidget once during the movie, and sat staring at the screen the entire time! No getting up, no asking when it was over, nothing! I think that right there is the best recomendation I can give! Kept my attention too, was very well done.

Loving all these positive reviews! Excited to have it come in still. Deciding whether or not to order it online or pick it up in-store.

yes, yes, yes. I highly recommend it though it comes out from a cheap studio (para*****)

a bit scary. nothing like a kiddie movie at all.

My copy arrived this morning. Enjoying it right now. Its a great transfer although it has a kinda dusty/smokey look to it most of the time.

Great movie, well recommended.

Just got my copy delivered to my front door this evening.
I'm looking forward to watching it.
From what i've heard, it's well worth the buy on Blu-ray.
