Fantasy adventure based on the "Spooks" novel. The film is about the last of an order of knights whose mission was to defeat "the forces of darkness". The main older warrior and his apprentices set out to try to fight against a group of witches, and others, led by one main, evil witch. However on their journey, Tom, the apprentice Spook (and a seventh son of a seventh son), encounters Alice, who has been accused of being a witch, but who may be on the side of good.

The film includes giant creatures such as dragon-like and troll-like ones, and witches.

A good film, the picture could have been a bit more detailed, including in the darker scenes. And it could have been a bit longer. The visual effects were good. The very ending might have been better a little bit more like the alternate ending. Also the extras were good, but there is no commentary option. The main menu options are symbols instead of more meaninful text.
