Synopsis:
In another time, the Dark Crystal - a source of balance and truth in the universe - was shattered, dividing the world into two factions: the wicked Skekis and the peaceful Mystics. Now, as the convergence of the three suns approaches, the Crystal must be healed, or darkness will reign forever! It's up to Jen, the last of his race, to fulfil the prophecy that a Gelfling will return the missing shard to the Crystal and destroy the Skekis' evil Empire. But will young Jen's courage be any match for the unknown dangers that await him?

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ - The Dark Crystal review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Good for 80's technology, boring story, annoying characters......just in my opinion bad. I recommend if you want to hire a Jim Henson film hire Labyrinth which is a far superior film.
