on his 14th birthday, when he is able to detect the signs, Alexander finds out that he is the last of a group of warriors - The Light - who have spent their lives fighting against evil - The Dark. he then travels through time to track down the signs that will enable him to confront the evil forces. i was told the movie was bad. with doubts, i stepped into the cinema. the trailer had been rather interesting for me. i wonder how bad is "bad" being defined here ?? finishing the movie, i gotta strongly disagree !! the movie was nice !! though not superb, but definitely Not in the bad category. it is a children fantasy movie, you can't expect fancy magics n overwhelming actions as in big production like Harry Potter. i used to be a big fan of children fantasy story books. stepping through time, exploring mysterious castles n enchanted forests. the movie is nothing close to be defined as bad. do not trust what you are being told. the greatest adventure here is to experience it yourself ..
