      Steve Crum Video-Reviewmaster.com Nothing touches the original, but this sequel is still good children's viewing. Rated: 3/5 Mar 2, 2008 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 14, 2005 Full Review Eric Lurio Greenwich Village Gazette Okay, I agree since the first one had only half the book a sequel was acceptable, but this wasn't.

      Arildo R O primeiro filme precisou ser sombrio e o segundo é de pai para filho. Este terceiro é ideal para as crianças com um retrato da geração MTV. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review David W The original Never Ending Story was a classic. Part two was terrible and sadly so was this. How they managed to mess up the sequels so woefully is one of life's great mysteries... Pathetic. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Um excelente divertimento. Pude ter a oportunidade de rever recentemente e é tão engraçado e divertido quanto antes. Destoa completamente dos anteriores e é uma aventura de ação e fantasia naturalmente mais leve. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Absaloutely terrible. Avid fantasy fan and have major loyalty to the original Neverending Story.. I even watched the second and didn't hate it. But this is total garbage. I couldn't stomach finishing it. Between the cheesy dialogue and rock biter/stoneman bursting into song (!?) What were they actually thinking. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review robert p Absolutely nothing to recommend this rotten movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Horrible, heinous, whatever you may call it. The Neverending Story III can't even qualify for a cult or guilty pleasure film. Everything is wrong, from the casting choices (Childlike Empress looks like a Vogue model) to the screenplay. I couldn't go through five minutes through this painful satire full of cheesy jokes, wooden acting and effects obviously created by crackheads. The first one's was lauded for its profound meanings, cinematography, effects and dark tone. I have mixed feelings about the second one, since it has nice artwork, cinematography and the very basic story from the second third of the book. But this? It has nothing except for a decent Jack Black. You may as well call this abomination created by Satan himself: "The Neverending Story III: Sebastian, the spoiled little shit spends five minutes in Fantasia with abominations and manages to fight his bullies in a 90s manner". If you ever come across a copy of this movie, don't even bother, just burn it, obliterate it to a million pieces and never talk about it again.
