All in all, I found this to be an excellent story, well-written and well-acted. Mark Rendall (Bastian) reminded me a lot of Jason James Richter (who played Bastian in The Never Ending Story III) in the original Free Willy and I thought he was a very appealing boy who gave "Bastian" a heart the other actors never achieved in the original films. In my opinion the character of Atreyu in the original films was much too young and neither actor gave the character any believability, as was the Childlike Empress. She wasn't child-like, she was a child.
After my son and I watched this, we found the the next installment, The Gift, and enjoyed it even more.
its made for children, therefore it WILL have cheesy acting, and cheesy effects, yes it strays ALOT from the book, but kids will love it! its a NEW version for a NEW generation, do you REALLY think kids will think the original movie is cool??? after seeing Harry Potter? sad to say HP has KILLED the idea of Good fantasy, it has perverted a great genre, however this film is for those who want to have a cheesy good time! Think saturday morning made for tv movie! the only thing that REALLY bothered me is the ending, there ISN'T one! and the dvd says "watch for the next installment coming to home video"??? uh, its home DVD not video!
bottom line, its an entertaining film for the NEW generation, no big studio is going to remake the first film, this is it folks! so stop whining and just read the book if you dislike this version so much!
Wait! I've got an idea! What if they made this movie so bad so people WOULD go and read the book? I don't know...I'm searching for explanations here.

I found this movie very entertaining. Yes, some of the elements have been changed from the original videos, so what. I thought the take on this one was interesting. Read morePublished on Sept. 6 2002
I'm a true NES fan and I found Tales From a lot of fun. They seemed to take elements from the book, take them apart, and put them together in new ways. Read morePublished on Sept. 1 2002
It is the start of a great series. They remade The Neverending Story into a great series. They remade it using todays stuff. It is a new great series. I would recomand it.Published on Aug. 24 2002 by John
