The Seeker

With all the hype over the Harry Potter chronicles it's not surprising that someone would try to jump on the bandwagon in sorts and cash in on it. The Seeker is about a boy who learns that he is the last of a group of immortal warriors who have dedicated their lives to fighting the forces of the dark. He has to travel thru time to get 6 signs to give the Light power. It's sort of a weird movie. The concept of it isn't too bad but the acting in it is horrendous!! I can't even compare it to anything cause I don't think I've ever seen anything with such bad acting in it. I guess it wouldn't be too bad if you were a 5 year old tho, you might like it. As I said the concept of the movie wasn't a bad idea, it was just the over-acting and lack of talent that did more bad then good. For anyone who's watched any of Harry Potter tho, you'll know that Harry was called "The Seeker" on the Quidditch team he was on. And as the Seeker it was his job to "seek" out and capture the "Snitch" (a little gold ball with wings) before the other team's Seeker. It's Will's job in The Seeker to travel thru time to find "signs" which are round little balls of gold light. When Harry found out he was "a great wizard" he was only a teen as is Will Stanton. Harry's best friend from school is Ron Weasley, the youngest boy in a family of 7 children (6 boys 1 girl), their father being a "civil servant" who liked to tinker with things from the "muggle world" Will was also from a family of 7 (6 boys and 1 girl). I'm unsure what Will's father did but it was along the same lines as Mr Weasley.

If you choose to watch this movie, don't have high hopes of another "Harry Potter" type but more along the lines of The Muppets.
