Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

A fun and often funny kids' adventure, this Norwegian movie strikes the right balance between fantasy adventure, positive messages, and silly bits to lighten the tone. There are jokes in Valley of Knights for both kids and adults, making this a nice family watch. There's even the odd nod to film fans with -- age-appropriate -- references to the likes of The Terminator.

Outside of Norway, Valley of Knights is dubbed into English. Jarringly mismatched voices grate at first but are soon overlooked, thanks in part to the performances of its actors. Bjarte Tjøstheim, who plays the dual role of both Mira and Kevin's father and his own love rival, is particularly good. The fun movie wraps up nicely with a Christmas party in the orange glow of a roaring fire, making it recommended holiday viewing.
