Roxy Hunter & The Secret Of The Shaman Movie (2007/Sony DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C     Telefilm: C-



The unimpressive Roxy Hunter franchise goes desperate with the lame, problematic Roxy Hunter & The Secret Of The Shaman Movie (2007) has an older, but not better title character trying to figure out a mystery on a movie set.  We already covered what was apparently the peak of the franchise in two telefilms on DVD at this link:





Looking (anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1) and sounding (Dolby Digital 5.1) as flat as the previous releases, I expected at least those qualities to improve at least a bit, but it did not.  Like the Nancy Drew revival, the 5-year-old mentality is almost insulting and none of this is very memorable, nor does it teach young ladies to be able-bodied enough for my tastes.  The movie aspect seems phonier than anything and I never bought this for a minute.  The child-safe aspect is the only thing that stops this from being a total bomb.


Extras include some bloopers, two featurettes, 2 Music Videos (!?!) and a Hidden Treasures feature that allows you to be a detective.
