Now this movie started off horribly. I flipped it on, took one look, glanced at my boyfriend and went “what the hell did I get myself into?” Netflix has this movie rated at two and a half stars and I believe that’s because people just couldn’t make it past the beginning.

Once you get past that initial “wtf” and straight into the heart of it, it gets really cute! It’s like another version of the Neverending Story. It’s got that same kind of imaginative, fantasy invading reality feel. But with a type of card game like Magic: the Gathering come to life. Can you imagine learning that Jace the Mind Slayer was real, living in your time… and hunting you down? All while you’re around twelve years old? Prepare that Counterspell!

Listen, I rate the beginning at a 1 and the rest of it at a 4.5 because it kept me laughing like a hyena. So it averages out to about 2.75, but I had to give it a little extra. Give it a chance and fight hard to get to the good part.

Overall Opinion – 3/5
