An explorer visits what appears to be the ruins of a gothic cathedral. There seem to be some strange statues, though, whose faces follow him as he makes his way to the end; the sun comes out, and he stops at the edge of a cliff.
Movie is still possible to watch but I strongly recommend the series.
This is not an impressive movie, and it is basically a compilation of the TV Series episodes (which I did find excellent, considering what was to be expected from the production).
Nonetheless, it was still quite enjoyable.
Both the series and the film made me really curious about the author's works and the original characters and stories.
I've voted the series with 9/10 because they are very good material, both acting-wise, choreography-wise, and in terms of script, as little, stand-alone stories, that have their own continuity. The only part they're lacking is special effects, and considering how well they relay the storytelling bit of Geralt's adventures, I'm not going to hold back due to that.
By contrast the film misses out on the continuity a lot. It's as if it's trying to relay the story of the series in its entirety, but ends up unable to do the same, so it has some naturally significant gaps. Nonetheless, the flak this movie's receiving is unbelievable.
If you're into fantasy stories with a more serious, less black-and-white context, and aren't waiting on your toes for special effects to thrill you, you're still going to enjoy the movie despite all of its flaws.
4/10 would've been my standard vote, but since the movie's taking so much undeserved slam, 5/10 to highlight that it's definitely a good watch for people who enjoy the odd fantasy low-budget movie.
