2.0 out of 5 stars read the book, 23 Mar 2006
This review is from: Battlefield Earth [DVD] (DVD)
Seriously this film does its source book no justice whatsoever. Firstly they just have not followed the story of the book properly, i agree that cutting certain pieces out is essential for all films. If you have high expectations of this kind of thing then you definately need your head tested, books in general dont make great films (ok one exeption, lord of the rings) but this did have some promise to begin with. Unfortunately they just didnt pull it off, mind you if you havent read the book this may make one of those brainless days even more brainless. This film is a take it like it is film, dont expect much and you will enjoy the stupid acting and effects, expect more and prepare for dissapointment. If you want real thrills, please read the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars well i rather enjoyed it, 18 Feb 2006
In Jordans world of time series it all starts quite suddenly with us being thrown in at the deep end, we are expected to know the past histories of moiraine and lan. These very intricate and complex characters (moiraine who we are hoping to re-appear in the next book) are unexplained, they are the only main characters within the series not to have been set-up or backgrounded. I think that every wheel of time reader should in all honesty be reading this book, not because it is a serious and well thought out story, but because it gives us a little bit of the coveted relationship history of these two memorable characters. The story is relaxed and cheerful, it is easy going and if you have not yet read it but have read the wheel of time series then read it. Hey we all need something to do in the next five years while he's writing the twelth book, at the very least this will take up a couple of hours of that time.
