The second film by Little Crew Studios.
I have watched their first film The Runner from Ravenshead several times and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. Thus when I learned that Little Crew Studios had made a second film, I was quite excited. Prompt shipping landed the DVD in the mailbox and we sat down to watch the film the day it arrived.
Let me say: It did not disappoint!
With an all child cast, this film reiterates, via an allegorical story, the importance of staying grounded in "The Book".
Follow one-armed Alec as he joins the Defense Agency in what becomes a wild ride as they battle to save New Haven from the menacing and mysterious Raiders. Suspense and emotions run high in a film featuring biblical truth, knee-slapping one-liners, and the cutest kid to ever sport a mustache. (So I think the character Eddie is just adorable.)
Moving on to the sets and production values--both are excellent, giving a sense of realism while also keeping within the bounds of childish imagination.
Speaking of children, the Steege children are really quite good actors. There is a small amount of dialogue that is a little hard to understand, but that is due primarily to the young age of the speaker(s). Otherwise, the lines are delivered convincingly and in a natural fashion (neither rushed nor laboriously slow). Every single character you see on screen is one of the seven Steege children.
The soundtrack was recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra.
I look forward to watching this one again (soon!) and hope that Little Crew Studios will be making more films!!
