I have to say that I very much enjoyed it, however maybe not as much as the first film. The filming was excellent, with beautiful backdrops and surroundings, very good CGI and good acting. It's been so long since I read the books however, that I can't remember if this was faithful to the original though... will have to re-read them I think! The things that let it down for me were the comedy elements, the mouse-knights and alike fitted very much with a Disney film, however I thought that they were not necessary, and detracted from the story. Also the knights masks were straight out of the 300, thought they could have been more original. Word of warning though, not sure if I would let very small children see it though as there is quite a lot of violent deaths albeit no blood. Good movie, but not a 5 star effort for me. Blu-Ray looked excellent, crystal clear and very impressive especially on the panoramic scenery shots.
