Warriors of Virtue ★★½ 1997 (PG)

Teenaged Ryan Jefers (Yedidia) is transported to the land of Tao where he learns the five virtues (righteousness, benevolence, integrity, wisdom, and loyalty) from the kangaroo-like Warmblood warriors, who live in harmony with humans. Then he must use his knowledge to fight the evil Komodo (MacFadyen), who wishes to steal the energy from Tao to make himself immortal. Nice message for the kids, with enough action to keep them interested, but the Warmbloods are dorky looking. 101m/C VHS, DVD . Mario Yedidia, Angus MacFadyen, Marley Shelton, Chao-Li Chi; D: Ronny Yu; W: Michael Vickerman, Hugh Kelley; C: Peter Pau; M: Don Davis.
