A boy who’s obsessed with playing video games ends up together with his dog and best friend inside an old puppet museum that harbors secrets. A big hit in its native country, this animated adventure has the annoying lead character (called Hurvínek in the original, Harvie in the English version) riding dragons, doing battle with a megalomaniacal puppet master and bonding with his dad. A lot of noise, zero emotion – and far too stereotypical characters.
