Into the abyss
8 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I wish I could say that this was a great, even good movie but alas Terrible is the word I would use ! I love fantasy, I like musicals but this fantasy musical was a non starter and didn't end soon enough. The singing and songs from the start were mind numbing on the point of brain washing with they"r nonsensical repetitiveness. So many great actors, such lovely scenery and backdrops yet what a total loser of a movie. I think if this had have been a non musical offering or along the lines of the TV series " Once Upon A Time" I'm sure it would have worked out much better. I think this was always destined for the stage rather than the big screen I am disappointed to say.
