Gregory Smith, Alexander Ludwig and Ian McShane star in The Seeker: The Dark is Rising. Get Kidzworld's movie review right here.

Magic, destiny and time travel take over ordinary Will Stanton's life the second he turns 14. Can a self-conscious boy really be the one chosen to save the world? Kidzworld checked out the film adaptation of Susan Cooper's novel, The Dark is Rising. Check out the review right here!

The Seeker - Destiny Calls

As if going through puberty with five older brothers harassing you isn't enough, Will Stanton discovers on his 14th birthday, just days before Christmas, that he has a destiny to fulfill! As The Seeker, Will must find six signs and use them to fight the Dark Rider to save the world from being devoured by the dark. What happens if he doesn't succeed? Just the end of the world!

The Seeker - Who Can You Trust?

With the help of the Old Ones (a few local elders who take Will under their wing), Will finds himself traveling through time, wielding great powers and learning things about his past he never knew. On top of all the magical drama, Will has to face down the growing threat of the Dark Rider, who is starting to enlist people close to Will to fight against him!

The Seeker - Bottom Line

Anthony Ludwig gives a great performance as the troubled Will Stanton so you can guarantee you'll be seeing a lot more of him in the next little while. If you're an Everwood fan, you'll want to check out The Seeker to get your latest Gregory Smith fix - he plays one of Will's older brothers. The Seeker may not have what it takes to compete with the fireworks that a Harry Potter movie brings to the theater, but it's a cool fantasy flick, especially for fans of the Susan Cooper book.

    When Matt Smith took over from David Tennant I was thinking it was gonna be horrible and then after the second episode I thought he was epicals too.  At first I was thinking Capaldi looked alot older but I like things hes done so far and hes still Doctor Who but the different actor..  and Im thinking hes gonna be awesome too.

    He's around the same age as the First Doctor and a few other Classic Doctors, so I don't really think he's "too" old. But I guess after Matt and David it's a big change.

    Matt Smith was the best doctor. When he first came I was like 'nah, no-one can beat david tennant' but he's definitely my favourite now. Im not sure Capaldi is right for the doctor. He's a great actor but he's too old :P
