This is another of those well reviewed but not watched by the public movies. I read the series of books that the movie is based on and was looking forward to see what they would do with the story. Is it just like the book? No. Was it fun to watch? YES

As much as I enjoyed the cinematography and special effects on this movie I felt like there was something wrong. The story was good enough and the acting was fine but it was lacking. If it had of gone for a little bit longer but also had far more detail to it then I think I would have been happy but as it is the story felt like it could have been told in 20 minutes. My impression of it was that th... read more

"Based on "The Dark is Rising Sequence" by Susan Cooper I don't know why they didn't make more of these. Didn't read them, thought the movie was okay. I would've totally watched a sequel."

" Note : Honestly, I have never heard of this flick before and it doesn't look very good. It is actually based on the novel 'The Dark is Rising' by Susan Cooper, which is part of a series of five books collectively called 'The Dark is Rising Sequence'. I guess we will never know what happened in those over books then... suggested by Leo"

“As much as I enjoyed the cinematography and special effects on this movie I felt like there was something wrong. The story was good enough and the acting was fine but it was lacking. If it had of gone for a little bit longer but also had far more detail to it then I think I would have been happy but as it is the story felt like it could have been told in 20 minutes. My impression of it was that the cinematography and special effects was just being used to mask the fact that there really wasn’t much effort put into and that it was being stretched out. Basically it turned into visual candy for the senses rather then being anything remotely in depth.

Funnily enough I still found it really engrossing for what it was lacking and it was enough to make me want to read the book it was ” read more

In the movie Will Stanton turns 14 and finds out he has powers to save the Light side of Earth. The Dark powers are growing and want to take over. He has to find a series of signs to save Earth. He can travel through time and needs to do so to get all the signs.

I thought the characters were well acted out in the movie and that the special effects were well done. There is a lot of adventure and excitement along the way. Some of the scenes may to a little scary for preschool kids. The rest of the family should en” read more
