The 10th Kingdom was much better than I had expected, and I had high hopesgoing into it! It was a visual delight with fantastic effects andlocations. I couldn't wait for each installment. Scott Cohen did afantastic job as the over-the-top Wolf. I was routing for Wolf andVirginiafrom their first meeting. Dianne Wiest makes a potentially one dimensionalcharacter come to life. Kimberly Williams and John Larroquette shine! Thetrolls are delightful and disgusting at once, particularly Ed O'Neill. Themovie reminded me of all of the fairy tales I heard growing up. I waseagerly awaiting the addition of each new well-known character. CamrynManheim as Snow White was a surprise, but she did a wonderful job. Happilyever after may not have lasted as long as Prince Wendell wanted, but itsdefinitely back with the 10th Kingdom!

The Synopsis for The 10th Kingdom (2000) 1080p
Two centuries after Snow White and Cinderella had their adventures, the Nine Kingdoms ready themselves for the coronation of Prince Wendel, Snow White's grandson, to the throne of the Fourth Kingdom. But an evil once-queen has freed herself from prison, and turns the prince into a golden retriever. Wendel, by means of a magic mirror, escapes into a hitherto-unknown Tenth Kingdom (modern day New York City) and meets Virginia and her father Tony. Pursued by trolls, cops, and a wolf in man's form, the three blunder back into the Nine Kingdoms and begin their adventures to restore Wendel to his human form and throne, and find the magic mirror that will take Tony and Virginia back home, all the while unknowing that Virginia already has a connection to the Nine Kingdoms that may prove deadly before we reach Happily Ever After.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw the previews for this mini series.Ithought it was to be a fluff piece on fairy tales. I was quite surprisedtosee the amazing make-up, the costumes and the scenery. All those thingsmake the series well worth the 4 hours. The storyline is interesting andhas a number of fantasy filled subplots. The Trolls were scary andhumorousat the same time. The clash of the parallel worlds was done well, withmuchattention to detail. The different 'kingdoms' were distinguishable andeachunique and fantastic. I see definite Emmy nominations and awards here,especially for make-up, costumes, and script.
When I was first approached to watch this film, I noticed the lengthand was completely turned away. Ten hours. Who could endure this manyinteractions with children's storybook characters? Luckily, my wife satme down and we began this lengthy process. To say the least, I wasimpressed. Directors David Carson and Herbert Wise did a spectacularjob of bringing the magic and detail of fairy tales to the smallscreen. Through the voyages of our three main heroes, we see so many ofour childhood escapes. Places where only our imagination took usbefore, we are guided through the images of modern television.
Imagination is only part of this miraculous tale. This film keeps withthe modern idea of fairy tales with some very dark thematic elements.The scenes with the Trolls and with Snow White were spellbinding. Youcould literally get lost in this film and never want to escape. JohnLarroquette and Kimberly Williams are decent in their roles (aboutaverage for television), but it is Scott Cohen as the Wolf thatliterally steals every scene. He plays his part to the fullest extent.Ed O'Neill and Rutger Hauer also contribute well to this story.
Overall, this was a beautiful (if long) story that continually pushedthe boundaries of a television mini-series. I never knew where it wasgoing to take me next or which fairy tale it would dive right into.There was never a dull moment and it is a story that can be watchedover and over again. This is a treat for anyone with a passion forchildren's literature!
