Went and watched this Monday afternoon.
I was hoping for some kind of Highlander type of twist, alas, it was not to be, in fact itís closer to the (1989) film Warlock, you remember the "turkey" staring Julian Sands.
It starts off pretty well, but gradually collapses into disconnected bouts of special effects & oddly setup confrontations, highlighted by soft-focus flashbacks of Kaulder's long-lost wife and daughter.
It ends up being messy and chaotic but never really succeeding on any specific level. The one kind of cool thing, was a magical gummi bear tree, that was kind of creative and fun lol.
I give 2 out of 5 stars, just for the fun aspect of it that they did occasionally mange to muster up.
