Is It Any Good?
Older kids might find this 1970s classic somewhat outdated, but there's still much for the younger set to enjoy, especially Tony and Tia's magical powers. The child actors, Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann, are very natural and sweet, and they make you care about them right from the start.
The special effects are very simple and straightforward, but remain surprisingly realistic. The climatic car chase, utterly unenhanced by fancy cuts and stunts, is very suspenseful. And it ends with an upside down helicopter, which is something few films can match.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
