I think I'd give the movie a 4 out of 5. Being a huge fan of the books, I had mixed feelings when I found out they were finally making a movie, but
after watching it a couple of days ago, I liked it.
My one gripe with the film is that it just wasn't long enough. It didn't do many of the characters justice (I'm looking at you, Bean). And many of
the battle room fights didn't make the film.
That said, the graphics were great. The battle room was actually a lot better than I had imagined it when I read the book. And the performances by
most of young actors and actresses in the film were not bad.
On a side note, Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham didn't exactly work for me. He did the accent well but I just couldn't get into it. Why couldn't they
just find an actor that actually was Maori?
