  Enjoyable Fantasy Film

| | See all silkrose's reviews (29)

I saw the trailer for this film and was very excited to see it, I have never read the books so do not have any previous judgments. It is a fun film which is action packed from start to finish, one all the family will love. It has now made me want to read the books.

  this is 10/10

I love fantasy flims but i never read the books but this has made me want to buy the book. It has been along time since a flim has drawn me so deep in so if anyone likes fantasy flims then buy this :)

Good casting and performances. Andy Serkis is great, as ever. Helen Mirren a pleasure to watch, as ever. And the film in general is enjoyable. Brilliant special effects. Something magical and warming to watch on a cold winters night.

For the majority of this film I wasn't entirely sure I was enjoying it. There were definitely all the ingredients for a great film but I'm not the director really pulled it off. However, I did like the idea and the fantasy elements and the special effects.
Definitely in two minds about this film but I would still give it a watch.

  Fantastic Christmas Treat for All the Family

Brilliant Fantasy Film - just perfect for an after - Christmas- Dinner -treat! Great for ALL the Family, with so many great stars. The kind that begs for several viewings to catch all the good lines! Really makes reading books look like fun. Well worth the money.

Before watching this film i was unsure of it the trailers didnt look that good and Brendan Frasers last few films had been a little suspect.
But i was quite suprised by this little tale the story is very original i like the idea of silver tongues people who when they read aloud can bring people and things out of the novel but the downside is someone or thing goes in.The film has got a good cast Fraser is quite good in this film Paul Bettany was very good and Helen Mirren was suprisingly funny in her role,The film is enjoyable and a decent fantasy adventure worth watching with the kids as im sure they would enjoy it and all together not a bad little film.

A good storyline and Helen Mirren is really good, im sure all kids will love it but any one else, i think will be bored before the end.
