Struggled with the book AND the movie!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Earthsea [DVD] (DVD)
From the moment I was given the book for christmas I tried to get into it. Repeatedly. I'd put it away and then take it up again in the hopes I could see something more in it, but nothing changed. I was much the same with the movie; where at least I was able to read about half the book, I didn't even get that far in the movie, which perhaps tells me that the movie was quite poor.
I don't think the acting in general was the worst I've seen but it wasn't much above 'lacklustre' and 'uninspiring'. Some of the sets were nicely done but the vistas were poor CGs and gave little magic to the scenes.
I really can't think of much to write about this. It was uneventful, boring even. /i found myself playing internet games after 10 minutes of watching it. By all means read the book and give the movie a try, but I'd advise streaming it or renting as it's likely you won't want to keep it.
