A charming little tale full of whimsey and adventure. Steamer-punk elements. A little disjointed in parts, and with a tepid ending that screamed sequal.
In other words, a good story burdoned by it's condition as a movie adaptation of a novel.
Cool effects. Some really good performances.
Skanky blond villian named "Coulter".
A certain scene I like to call "bowling for cossacks".
All-in-all, it was a nice little family outing.
Awaiting final verdict until after the sequal.
