The plot of this fantasy adventure isn't particularly original, but the story is well crafted. Despite moments of danger, the tone is mostly light and enjoyable, and the young actors are likable. Different moments in time are realized with notable attention to detail, and there's the potential for audiences to learn a little about history. The time machine special effects are bright and exciting -- especially when the characters are pulled through a whirling vortex at great speed -- which will thrill younger viewers.

Obstacles come thick and fast, but both Valdemar and Sille are resourceful in their own ways. The relationship between the two is realistic and touching. The character of Vølven the witch is age-appropriately dark and threatening, while the cursed Benedict, despite some flaws, is sympathetic enough to get onboard with his mission. If you can suspend disbelief and go along for the ride, Timetrip: The Curse of the Viking Witch is a fun, heartwarming mix of present-day tween drama, sci-fi, and historical adventure.
