Slight but entertaining fantasy about a 14-year-old American boy (Alexander Ludwig) living in England with his parents (John Benjamin Hickey and Wendy Crewson), his sister (Emma Lockhart) and four brothers (Gregory Smith, Drew Tyler Bell, Edmund Entin and Gary Entin), who learns that he is "The Seeker," the last in a succession of supernatural warriors known as the Old Ones. With the assistance of four of his elders in this hearty band (Ian McShane, Frances Conroy, James Cosmo and Jim Piddock) he must undertake to fulfill an ancient prophecy by gathering together six magical signs, all the while battling the forces of darkness embodied by a malevolent equestrian (Christopher Eccleston) and fighting off the distraction posed by an attractive local girl (Amelia Warner) one of his brothers is dating. The film, as directed by David L. Cunningham, makes up for a thin plot with an evocative atmosphere, fun special effects and positive moral values. Passing references to puberty and a few scenes that may frighten very young children. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
