4.5 A great adaptation of a fantastic novel. Caramon | 05/09/2012 | See all Caramon's reviews (77) Based on one of the latest Discworld books, GOING POSTAL is the story of how a conman, Moist Von Lipwig, is persuaded to take over Ankh-Morporks failing Post Office by Lord Vetinari, the citys ruler.This is a very good adaptation, my favourite of all the SKY 1 Discworld films so far, and has a top rate cast. Charles Dance is brilliant as Lord Vetinari, Richard Coyle is extremely charismatic as Moist Von Lipwig, and Claire Foys Adora Belle Dearheart is both cold and beautiful in equal measure. David Suchet makes a good villain, and lots of the humour from the original book has successfully transferred to the screen.GOING POSTAL is by far the most visually stunning of the three SKY 1 Discworld movies, and with a running time of three hours, will keep all fans and Discworld newbies suitably entertained. Highly recommended.
