Awful, but there has been worse from SyFy
17 July 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

As much as I do dislike a vast majority of SyFy's movies, something about their badness makes them compulsively watchable. I found Jabberwock not their worst or even one of their worst, but it was an awful movie in my opinion. The effects, as I have said before for previous movies that were also lame but not horrifically bad, have been worse but that is in no way excusing how artificial, crude and un-menacing the Jabberwock in particular actually is. The scenery is not actually too bad, but I never got a sense of wonder because the camera work was so jumpy. The music is also generic and there is nothing thrilling about the action, it all feels half-hearted with the climax very tepid. I've known SyFy fantasy-adventure-genre movies to have anachronistic and horrendously stilted dialogue and Jabberwock was no exception. The story was sluggish and held few if any surprises, and the characters are not only clichéd but you don't get to know or feel for any of them. The acting is dire with none of the actors showing any sense of genuine dread or even concern for their situation. I'd actually go as far to say that they didn't look as though they wanted to be there. Overall, I've seen worse, but this was very poorly done and amateurish on the whole. 2/10 Bethany Cox
