If you are a fan of Patrick Stewart, this may be worth a watch. He is young and has hair. His acting in this is solid as always, but he is the only redeeming part. His fake "Northern" accent is a bit weird, but OK.
Most of the other actors are mediocre or just terrible. I especially didn't like the lead actress. The camera and lighting quality are low which also made it hard to watch. I was often distracted by the edges of the picture being blurry, which must be from using cheap zoom lenses.
At 4 hours long, with slow pacing, this was almost unbearable to get through, but Patrick Stewart's performance made it worth finishing. The story is also good, but I've been told the 2004 version is better.
