"The story of WOV is about a boy who always wished he was something more. Ryan is a boy who has a crippled knee, and has always dreamed of playing football and just being normal. His friend gives him a book, telling him it is his way to "finding himself." Ryan scoffs at it, but takes it. But when he is sucked into a churning water pool in a freak accident, it transports him to a world unlike any other. There, he must aid the Warriors of Virtue, a band of Roos who command the forces of nature. In the end, it becomes a quest to defeat the forces of evil, and a journey to find his way back home.
This movie greatly focuses on the idea of not what you have on the outside, but what is inside. Ryan's quest to become stronger on the outside becomes a quest to get home, which can only be done by understanding what was inside him."
A movie is only as good as its villain

"To be frank, this movie gives the feeling of a thrown together, have a happy ending kid movie. But when u see its villain, all conventions disappear. Komodo has to be one of the best villains in this genre of film. I find myself renting it over and over , just to watch the scenes with him in it. Angus Macfayden brings a quirky and somewhat comedic attitude but thats balanced by the sadistic evil we know lies in Komodo because of his ruthlessness. Now i admit, parents may not like choice scenes in the movie such as Alicia's new outfits as she joins Komodo and the sex kitten attitude. Now this is to parents looking to buy this movie. There is a curse word and i myself, who watched it before as a child, did not remember it being there so be on the watch. There is only one so it wont do much damage to the young viewer. But it might get them repeating it. There is a good bit of violence and some bloodshed, which is what i meant by conventions being shattered as the villain enters the story. To be honest i find Angus in this role to be dangerous and sexy, which keeps my coming back. As for the heroes, i do like how they made them non conventional ie kangaroos. It twists the story a bit and gets the kids rooting for the cute karate kangaroos, which is the aim of the filmakers. The fight sequences are spectacular. With a director like John Woo, you come to find great action sequences and here is no exception. My one probablem, which is why there is one less star, is the abysmal script. Even though there are memorable lines, the rest of it drags the story down like the titanic and leaves you going huh? Other then that the rest is all good and i thank John Woo for giving a non forgetable villain."

"I watched this movie on TV Thursday night, and I loved it! It might have it's flaws, but it is still an excellent movie. The morals behind it were what I'd want to teach my kids. The bad guys being redeemed at the end isn't something that is done often, and it's good to see that in a kid's movie. It may have a few flaws, but it's good for teaching your kids about doing what's right. I'd say it's best for kids from about 8-13 years old, but younger kids might still like it too. And there's no reason most adults shouldn't like it."
