Skellig The Owl Man Blu-Ray Review

Skellig The Owl Man Blu-Ray Review 

Synopsis: This moving tale of a boy who befriends a mysterious man with unearthly powers will cast a spell on the entire family! Young Michael hates his dilapidated new home, he's worried about his sick baby sister and hes bullied at school. But life changes when he stumbles upon "Skellig" hiding out in a backyard shed (Tim Roth, The Incredible Hulk), and quickly realizes that there's something very special about him. As magical things start to happen, an entirely new world opens up to Michael, who turns to a reluctant Skellig for help when his baby sister takes a turn for the worse. Don't miss this unforgettable story about the power of friendship and family, the beauty of hope and the rapture of learning to fly.

Review: Skellig the Owl Man is a new kids fantasy film that has elements of the Neverending Story.  The magical Owl Man turns up to watch over this boy after his life has essentially fell apart.  Skellig is a reluctant old man living in a shed, when this boy, Michael, shows him kindness, suddenly things start to change.  The film is very emotional and does deal with topics of illness and death.

The blu-ray high-definition looks fantastic.  The sound quality is great and he production value is high.  This is a great quality film that every family should enjoy together.
