In order to rescue his father, he must find, The Aculos”, while fighting off fairies, trolls and a rather disgusting dwarf.
The main problem I had with this was that all of the characters were one-dimensional, cardboard and dry.; there was no one very interesting except for the dwarf. A waste of Judi Dench, who tries her best, but cannot overcome the material. The special effects, while adequate, were not very engaging. Finally, the story itself, which involved fairies using holograms and computers was not particularly…enchanting.
I’d recommend you give this one a pass. There are no post-credit scenes.
