Make No Mistake, This Movie Is Not Biblical or Even About Je

"Make no mistake; this movie is not biblical or even about Jesus.
In this make believe world there is dark and light magic. The magi explain how light magic fights against dark magic and how they have been chosen to find the magical gifts for God. The wise men go on an enchanted journey to find the secret City of Salt where the treasures have been hidden. All the while Herod and his evil sorcerer (who turns into different creatures) try to stop the great wise men heroes. Once the wise men find the City of Salt and answer a couple riddles using their virtues of Courage, Humility, and Love they are given gold, frankincense, and myrrh. After defeating Herod and the sorcerer, who turns into a dragon, they briefly mention that they take the gifts to Jesus, but never show the manger scene or anything of the nature.
This story is being told to a young boy by a shopkeeper / bartender and finishes the story by telling him that if you believe in the 3 wise men, they will bring your presents on the day of the 3 Wise Men.
If you would like a free copy of this movie, email me. I will give you mine unless I have already destroyed it. This story is blasphemous on so many levels, not just because they changed the story, but because they substituted anti-Christian values into positive roles. No self-respecting Christian story includes using magic to fight evil or changes the meaning of the birth of Jesus. I just cannot figure out how a Christian singer such as Jaci Velasquez would be a voice of one of the characters.
This movie is a cross between Aladdin, Harry Potter, and Jason and the Argonauts.
A waste of money and time

"How bad can an animated movie be? Let me count the ways. First of all, the best art work in the movie is on the cover of the box. It's all downhill inside. Secondly, the story is a hash of magicians, wolves, dragon, scorpion, slaves, etc., and 'let's all be friends and play nice' morality. Whoever produced, directed, and wrote this mess needs to 'examine their priorities', as Ron Weasley would tell them. Baby Jesus turns out to be a bright light, the angel is a poor rip-off of the genie from Aladdin, David's slingshot kills the dragon (oops! spoiler! but you aren't really going to watch this, are you?) and Herod (who probably was a monster in his own right with no help from sorcery whatsoever)is a spoiled brat. Do not e-mail me for a free copy. For the first time I have thrown away a movie that I paid full price for. I think it might actually be bad for children to watch so I won't pass it on."
