Good entertainment for youngsters
on 24 January 2014
As a child I read the books over and over. I have done the same with children of my own. While I accept the book and the imagination will usually be superior to the film, I was just a little disappointed. The production is good, the child actors were okay, improving in the third film. However the film deviated from the books, and not in a good way, particularly in the last film. In my opinion this robbed the story of a little magic. On balance a good video to have for youngsters on a rainy Sunday afternoon but read the books first.
