JOSH KIRBY ... TIME WARRIOR! LAST BATTLE FOR THE UNIVERSE
JOSH KIRBY ... TIME WARRIOR! LOST WORLD OF THE GIANTS
The best aspect of the film is the script, which is written to a level of maturity rarely found in childrens films. The scenes with Josh talking to his sleeping mother, divided between staying behind with her and going back to save the future, is a lovely piece of writing. The scene where he must confront Azabeth, who has decided to sacrifice herself so that he can save the future with the knowledge that he will never see her again, is a character choice that one is not likely to see in many other childrens films.
The film is written not without a degree of amusement too. Azabeth has a highly amusing paean to an ordinary suburban street as being what her people aspire the most to in life, while Josh is aghast at being confronted with his baby self: I just messed myself in front of everybody. This is even worse than baby photos. And then there is his lament to his giant sleeping mother: I never thought Id get the chance to see you in this life and even if I did, I didnt think youd be the size of the Jolly Green Giant.
