you see this movie in the theater before the age of ten and you will love it. I saw it before I saw 7th Voyage, (well, that's actually not quite true, but I didn't see all of that movie) so it was all rather original for me. I didn't know the producer had pretty much aped 7th Voyage for the fights.
all I know is it had everything a movie needed, monsters, babes, fights, magic and a dog! the story isn't exactly the same as 7th Voyage, so that's a plus for it. it also turns out, it features a creature that could arguably called the first kraken in a movie. which is one of my favorite critters ever on film.
