Product Description

Children's fantasy action adventure. Meggie (Eliza Bennett) travels all over the world with her father Mo 'Silvertongue' Folchart (Brendan Fraser), a skilled bookbinder. Mo has a very special talent: he is able to bring story characters to life as he reads. When he brings three characters to life from the medieval tale 'Inkheart', fire-eater Dustfinger (Paul Bettany) and the villainous duo Capricorn (Andy Serkis) and Basta (Jamie Foreman), he unleashes a terrible evil that will come back to cause all kinds of trouble for his family for years to come. Helen Mirren and Jim Broadbent co-star.

I saw this at the cinema, and I couldn't take my eyes off the screen during the whole feature.

Of course it not EXACTLY like the book. It has taken parts out, switched things around, but all book-to-movie adaptations do that.

It is purely incredible to watch, the characters are perfect, and the special effects are brilliant.

As a huge fan of the Inkworld trilogy, I am definately NOT dissapointed with this film. And am now waiting impatiently for the DVD.

This is a neatly made, solid little movie, very competent, well acted, capable of holding a grown up's attention. I have got (had) to see a lot of these fantasy type films recently, and after the Harry Potters it holds its head up with the best of them. It is more coherent and whole as a story, with better changes in dramatic pace, and characterization than the let-down Golden Compass, say - and absolutely head and shoulders above the utterly dire "Secret of Moonacre" and Bridge to Tarabithia. Better than Five Children and It, and the Water Horse. Better than Nanny McPhee, which was OK itself. It really stands the test, actually. Oh, and the main child character is a girl.

Brendan Fraser's been having a rough old time of it lately. Both The Mummy 3 and Journey To The Centre Of The Earth were shocking awful. Really, really woeful. And it's a shame because Brendam Fraser is actually very good, and seems to be painting himself into a bit of a corner. (Look at his performaces in Scrubs and The Passion of Darkly Noon to see how talented he really is.)

The trailers for Inkheart make it seem extraordinary - like a The Neverending Story for the noughties - and while it lives up to its promise visually, it falls a little flat elsewise. I've not read the books, and am beginning to understand they have a huge following, so if you're a fan of the books and want a review that will be able to contrast and compare, hopefully one of the other reviews will be able to do that.

Back to Fraser: he's very good. We've grown accustomed to seeing him in comedy roles, and I can't remember him smiling a single time here. Along with him the cast comprises of Paul Bettany, Eliza Bennett, Helen Mirren, Andy Serkis and Jim Broadbent - it's an exceedingly British cast - and all play their parts well.

The problem is, aside from the astoundingly good visuals, it's all a little listless. You keep expecting something amazing to happen and it never does.

Mortimer "Mo" Folchart (Brendan Fraser) makes his living as a repairer of old books. He and his daughter Meggie (Eliza Bennett) travel all over Europe stopping in antiquated bookshops. And in each one, Mo searches the entire collection for one book in particular, Inkheart.

Mo finally finds a copy, but just after he does, he is confronted by Dustfinger (Paul Bettany), one of the characters from the novel. Mo manages to run away, and he and Meggie flee to great aunt Elinor's (Helen Mirren) in Italy. But they aren't safe there. Dustfinger appears again, says he is working with Capricorn (Andy Serkis) now, and kidnaps the three of them.

Only when the group reaches Capricorn's castle does Mo explain what is happening. Seems he is a Silvertongue and has the ability to read characters into and out of books. Dustfinger and Capricorn are characters in Inkheart, but Mo wants to find a copy for a very personal reason. What do the characters want? Can Mo and his family escape?

The previews for this movie made it seem like I would love it. Heck, as a reader, the premise of characters traveling between a novel and the real world appeals to me. But the movie just seemed off to me.

And it's mainly a matter of expectations. I expected lots of references to characters from famous novels. There are some, but the main focus is on the characters from the book in question. I expected a fast paced action story. Yes, there were action scenes, but there were also long passages between them where the story moved forward rather slowly.

I did find myself getting lost in the story. The acting was top notch, and the special effects were jaw dropping. Heck, even the cinematography held impressive shots of lakes and castles.

Well I think that the 2008 film of Inkheart is an OK film. However I have watched this film at a local cinema in Dudley when I was at my oldest school which was called Halesbury. I was quite young because I had no idea what this film was about.
I mean it's not the best film in the world but in the end it's an average fantasy adventure.
So those are my thoughts on the review of Inkheart.
Thank you Amazon.co.uk. Three stars all round!
