This is a very long film – I’d strongly suggest seeing it somewhere that a) has no kids, and b) has an intermission. After about 2 hours I was getting fidgetty, and starting to mutter “get on with it”.
To be honest I wasn’t greatly impressed with the film. Nothing wrong with it – very clever in many ways – but ok rather than superb. The cinematics were very good though – loved the scenary, special effects, and the casting was spot on. It’s hard to see how they good have made the film better, given the book they were working from, but it just overstayed somewhat, and defintely dragged in places.
