Overall, a very enjoyable trip into fantasy land. I learned thenks about fairies and gremlins and the such that I never imagined. The acting was good (not great) and the story line was very good. I can't help but feel with all of these magnificent tools of sight and sound available, it couldn't have been made more memorable.

We took our 3 boys ages 5, 4 and 2 to see this and they loved it along with us. There are a few parts that are alittle scary(like when Jared stabs a ogre diguised as his dad) but that didn't stop my sons from having a great time. There's a ton of action and both cute and some really ugly characters. Nickelodeon did a great job bringing this series to life.

Good movie, nothing like the book

The movie is not at all like the books, so if you have read the books you might be disappointed. My husband had not read the books and felt that is was a good overall movie. The kids enjoyed it.

We saw this movie on the IMAX screen. The special effects were great. The acting was decent. The story lacked plausibility on the big screen, though; this is a case where seeing what was imagined on the page actually made it less engaging.
