Now these Hobgoblins are going after his friends and is using the power of the mind to trick them into dying.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

This isn't a horrible movie, you can see they put some effort into it. But they made a ton of mistakes, there were character issues for one, story issues and even though they were cool, the Hobgoblins look like hand puppets. but there is enough to like to give it 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

There is some things to like about it, but besides the story, character and the fact in one scene the Hobgoblin was technically floating when they don't have that power, it was overly silly, there was this part at the end was worthy of a cartoon. 5 STARS, at the most.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (Had some story issues, but it was pretty good.)
+ CAST (The cast does a good job with what was given to them.)
+ CREATURES (For handpuppets, pretty cool.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- CHARACTERS (There were some character that we did not like.)
- STORY (Minor elements that didn't make sense.)
- SILLY (The movie was very silly at times.)

...AND FINALLY...

- PUPPETS (Clever or not, they were still hand puppets.)
