NEVERENDING STORY II: THE NEXT CHAPTER (Theatrical Release Japan 1990)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì 

NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter—imaginative—seems to come off flat and a little amateurish which is difficult to resolve because of the high level directing skill of George Miller. The props need an update and the story needs to make an audience feel the realism of this imagination. 

Storyline 

An old book leads a boy into a world of make-believe.
