“…a one-dimensional hero definitely makes it less appealing for casual movie goers. …some terrific production design and digital effects, notably the Witch Queen’s lair and a creature called the Sentinel, both nightmarish pagan constructions of shape-shifting wood and bone. A couple of late plot twists also feel refreshingly left-field, even if they are shameless signposts for future sequels.” –Stephen Dalton –The Hollywood Reporter
“As trashy fantasy movies go, at least this one isn’t boring.” – –ReelViews
