Review: The movie itself is a good movie and as a person who have never read the stories then I like it quiet a bit as it has plenty of action plus it have a good way to tell the story while still giving the action. I felt that I missed some back story of the people at times like why they were fighting and so on as we appeared in the end of the war plus I expected a bit more fight between the good and prime evil as it ended quiet fast but they were “fighting” the whole movie. As I last thing then I found the acting at bit weird at times too like when our hero escapes the evil, his parents searches for him but when his parents goes missing too the people next door does not finds it weird even that their son spends a good deal of time at the place.
Stars: 5 of 6 stars as a few things brothers me but like it overall
What I like I like the connections between our world and their world, I like it gives action between a good and an evil character while still telling the story of the main character
What I don’t like The final fight is a bit too short after how much time they have focused on him
Rewatchability: Sure but might wait for DVD if I am going to get it
