I recently saw Midnight Chronicles and was quite impressed.
I believe that the story achieved what the writers intended, to introduce the setting of Midnight as a launching point for other stories. The special effects were effective. Not great, but good. The images gave enough sense of realism to carry the story.
For the most part, the acting was well done. While some of Chuzara’s dialog seemed a bit stiff and Gaelen’s emotions were a bit dry, Steve Sweere and Richard Ooms (in both roles) were quite impressive. As far as a stand out performance, it is a tough call. Charles Hubbell did an outstanding job as the lead antagonist, Mag Kiln. However, Sam Landman’s flamboyant portrayal of the gluttonous Kruce was also a favorite. I would like to see both of them in more.
I hope see more Midnight Chronicles. It may not have been a blockbuster, but was definitely better than some the movies and series I’ve seen on Sci Fi…Sorry, Sy Fy (it’s a stupid name change).
I would like to see more critical comments. What did you think?
