Description:Fantasy about a boy (Barret Oliver) visualizing the stories of a book he's
reading. The imagined tale involves another boy, a warrior (Noah Hathaway), and
his efforts to save the empire of Fantasia from a nemesis called the Nothing.
Um, I'll resist saying that this is really a Never Ending Story. Sorry,
just couldn't help myself.
This fantasy tale drags
incredibly despite its relatively short running time. The movie makes a point
about people not bothering with reading any more and going to the movies instead
where they are not required to use all their creative and intellectual
facilities. Sort of a self-defeatist
philosophy for a movieto take if you know what I mean. Kids seem to like it though.
