I've been watching the newest season on Nickelodeon, having been a fan of the original Italian series since 2004. The original version of this movie was released in 2007, and I have to say, the old saying is true; nothing compares to the original.
This movie was...meh at best. The dialogue was bad, the voice-acting was mediocre, and a lot of important, story-building content was cut out. Worth the buy since it's cheaper than most movies nowadays, but definitely make it a point to watch the original Italian with English subs or the Rai English dub on Youtube, you'll see the differences!
