What's it about
A paranormal investigator (Ewers), with the power to see past memories of anyone he touches, loses his wife and his daughter is kidnapped by a group who want the child as a sacrifice. After a fairy tells him what’s going on, he finds a warrior (Bailey) to help him and they’re off to save his daughter and maybe the world.
Is it good movie?

This flick was way too long, and a letdown. The basic premise of mythical creatures and magic use in modern times sounds like a groovy time to me, but other than that good idea, everything else just comes up short in every way (cue the bad news.)

To start, the acting is terrible, especially the lead, Jordon Ewers. He was either completely wooden or way over the top, I couldn’t take him seriously and wound up not having any emotional interest in the character. The rest of the cast doesn’t fare much better.

It doesn’t help that the cast had to act out the often terrible lines of dialogue which made me roll my eyes. Even in a fantasy type environment, you don’t really expect to hear people talk like that. The direction was decent until it came to the fight scenes. The fighting wasn’t all that hot to begin with but there wasn’t much effort in hiding the choreographed punches and kicks.

Really, there isn't a lot to say about this movie. It simply runs on so long, with too many superfluous scenes of pointless dialogue that just stretch on forever. The premise is good, but that and a dollar will get you a cup of coffee.

Last Call
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with a strong premise but when nothing else can live up to it, it turns out to be a huge disappointment. This movie had potential, but it is very strange to me why this movie had to span two discs and stretch out so long, especially when the acting was so poor. Unfortunately, Folk Bore would be more like it.
