'KEVIN'S JOURNEY INTO THE WORLD OF FANTASY'
on 16 January 2015
Young 'Kevin' (Craig Warnock) reads of times gone by, one night, his bedroom seems to have become a portal, as
six dwarfs led by 'Randall' (David Rappaport) enter his bedroom through the wardrobe, they are running from the
'Evil One' (David Warner) they'd stolen an enchanted map.
'Kevin' gets swept away through a Time-Window along with his new found friends, this triggers a new and wonderous
adventure as with the Dwarfs he begin a journey to steal whatever they can.
The Dwarfs by using the map can travel through portals to accumulate and escape...........their fist encounter is with
'Napoleon' (Ian Holm) who has a complex about his 5' 1" stature, stealing from the legendary conqueror far too easy,
the portal lands them into 'Sherwood Forest' where 'Robin Hood' (John Cleese)is more than happy to relieve the would
be thieves of their ill-gotton gains.
They are unaware that the 'Evil - One' is tracking their every move, he wants the stolen map back to further his evil plans
to rule the World with his brand of justice.
'Kevin' escapes through the portal alone on this occasion finding himself in Ancient-Greece where his entry into that time
saves the King of Mycenae Agamemnon (Sean Connery) who decides to make 'Kevin' his 'heir' in gratitude.
However the loveable thieving 'Dwarfs' are not far behind 'Kevin' as his adventure continues.....
Will 'Kevin' find his way back home and return to reality.........(What of the Photo's he takes with his Polaroid Camera ??)
A superb family friendly fantasy adventure that can be enjoyed by all.........the 1981 movie's upgrade to the Blu-ray format
actually most acceptable.
