Bad. No. wait. Very very very BAD.
25 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is maybe the worst movie of 2016... wait this was made in 2016? It looks like a 90s Nickelodeon straight to DVD movie with CGI that was made from 3D Movie Maker program.

The acting is not to bad if this was 1995. (sadly it's 2016 made) The over all plot is good and would make for a nice story. (if done correctly)sadly it wasn't.

We see our hero ask for help in fighting as he has zero skills to speak of. So the skilled worrier teaches him... 1 thing. Only 1 simple move (hold hands out). Then somehow magically he becomes a super fighting ninja that's taking down 50 to 60 guys with no problem.

Top that off with what looks like half the movie cut out (very bad editing) They free the princess and use a catapult to get away, The next scene you see the princess locked up and the main bad guy walking into frame to attack our hero...WTF just happened? The main bad guy should be miles away from them and where the heck did the wizard and warrior go?

Anyways... He saves the day and goes back home all to some how make his own video game in 1 night..1...NIGHT! based off his "adventure" to only sell the game for $25,000 to save their house from getting taken away.

Even by 1990s standers this was a bad movie. Don't waste your time.
