It is a nicely made movie and a very short version of the trilogy, containing the majority of the important events from the books.
I thought it was well filmed, tastefully done and the characters were both memorable and real. Very well acted. I could see that some money had been spent on both the film and the actors - well worth the watch for a new version of an old history lesson.
Just as if you think the film is going to end, it brings on a whole new light, and extends it further into more depth. It was well put together and overall it was brilliant.
Well worth a watch.
