Upworld Review

Image for Upworld

Gnome Gnorm is a typical bloke really in that all he wants to do is impress the ladies. So he nicks some magic stones so that he can leave Gnomeland, and ends up witnessing a murder here on Earth. Enlisted to help a cop catch the killer - and save his own hide - Gnorm gets the adventure he's been waiting for, although poor Detective Casey is going close to crazy.

★★★★

In one of the sillier cop movie premises, nerd policeman Anthony Michael Hall is partnered with a gnome called Gnorm in this unexceptional fantasy adventure. Hall wants to nail his crooked superior, and Gnorm wants to retrieve a tribal gem, and they wander through a boring plot griping at each other.

Predictable and pointless, but a triumph of special effects gnomesmanship.

A weathered example of the Gnomansland of fantasy comedy.
