The mummy of a cursed pharaoh and a reanimated corpse terrorize a medical university. Only an Egyptologist and a college professor, the deranged Dr. Frankenstein, may be able to stop the creatures before it's too late.
Beyond Beyond is a story about wanting the impossible. A story about a little rabbit boy not old enough to understand the rules of life, who takes up the fight against the most powerful ... See full summary »

Driven to rage over the tawdry excesses of reality television, a self-appointed cultural crusader kidnaps several very famous nobodies to make his point- but his crimes only generate more tabloid frenzy.
A magical adventure begins Once upon a time, within a vast and wild forest there was a fantastic Kingdom called Rodencia, a place where wonderful creatures and powerful wizards lived. It's the story of adventures and love of a small mouse called Edam, a clumsy magician's apprentice and the beautiful and confident mouse Brie, who will have to face many dangerous obstacles in order to obtain the power of the princess's tooth and defeat the troop of rats commanded by the evil Rotex who invades Rodencia (the peaceful kingdom of mice), in order to dominate them and take their treasure. In the middle of the forest; the magic of the light and the darkness, the love and resentment will face together. Edam and Rotex will fight and only one will leave victorious.Written by
Look, if you even know this movie exists, chances are you're either a die-hard animation buff, a furry, or nursing delusions of doing a bad movie review channel like the Nostalgia Critic.
If you're #1 or #2, this is. . . Passable. And if you want a really bad movie to write a scathing review of, you'll be disappointed to learn that this movie's badness is predominantly of the bland and uninspired variety.
I will give the movie two compliments: It was ambitious in its scope, and it has a great foundation for a movie, combining the typical "chosen one" trope with the "little big world" theme commonplace in movies and shows with mouse protagonists. Perhaps the ambition was to produce something like "Epic", only with mice instead of. . . Whatever those leaf-people were.
The movie's ambitions, however, are undermined by a very clear lack of capacity; it WANTS to be big and epic, but in doing so, it stretches its already shoestring budget, leaving us with PS2-era graphics, uncanny character movement, and lip movement that is only just barely good enough to not be hilariously terrible.
As for its foundation, while it can be mildly amusing to hear the generic sage character refer to something grand and whimsical only for it to turn out to be something commonplace, it does very little to excuse the movie's generic characters, generic plot, generic humor, etc., etc.
Chances are that, if you saw the trailer, you did not need to read this review. Of course, as noted above, chances are also that you would not know this movie even existed were it not somehow in your proverbial wheelhouse. So if you were curious to its existence because you belong to an overlapping fan base, and if you see it for cheap in a thrift store (as I did) or online, or stumble across it on one of the movie channels. . . Well, yeah, this movie will probably be tolerable. Not really worth the money, but if you're snowed in and want to spend an hour doing something other than browsing around IMDb looking for hilariously brutal reviews of horrible movies, it might be worth your time.
