Brilliant
13 April 2009 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately at present there isn't the function to give a rating for Skellig due to it's current status on IMDb, but if there was one I would rate it 10/10.

I saw Skellig on Sky One last night, and although it was a little on the long side I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish.

Tim Roth was brilliant as Skellig, and he captured the character brilliantly, keeping me interested throughout, which is a hard thing to do these days concerning the amount of rubbish on television at present.

If you missed the airing on Sky One, then definitely find a way to watch this - it was rather unfair for those who do not have Sky and are left with only Freeview, but if all the others watching it enjoyed it as much as myself, I am sure it will soon be out on DVD.

Definitely worth seeing whether you remember the book coming out like myself, or whether you're a young person looking for something compelling to watch.
