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.

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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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!
