Without an appreciation for cheesy old adventure movies, it might be hard to see why this low-budget, comically awkward film with giant stop-motion monsters is a fun watch. But those who think fondly of Clash of the Titans and other Ray Harryhausen-directed films will enjoy this retro approach to fantasy adventure. By taking out the modern sense of gore and reducing it to magic spells, dissolving villains, and the tiniest bit of bloodshed, you're able to focus more on the story, the adventure, and the heroism that makes adventure movies fun.

Here, there may be a bit more style than substance, but it's a valiant effort. Best for teens who could appreciate a modern take on a long-gone genre.
