A Horror Show
14 November 2008 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

This series is what all fans of great books dread.

When I heard that the "Sword of Truth" books were to be made into a mini-series, I was hopeful. In the past few years, movie and television interpretations of great books have been surprisingly good while still remaining true to the original source material. "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" are a couple of examples that come to mind. Sadly, the "Legend of the Seeker" is neither good, nor true to the source material.

The production looks and feels like a poor man's Xena. Amateurish looking stunts, bad acting, horrid casting choices, poor camera work, etc. On top of which, the story, that glorious, gritty, inspiring story, has been butchered so as to be almost unrecognizable. Change for change sake, none of it for the good.

Imagine, if you will, "The Fellowship of the Ring" opening with Gandalf and Bilbo being chased by a group of Nazgul. Bilbo is shot by one of the Nazgul, but with his dying breath he gives Gandalf the ring and says "Find the Ringbearer, he must have this ring" and the dies in Gandalf's arms. During this emotional scene, the riders who have been pursuing them have evidently taken a wrong turn, or else a lunch break, as they are nowhere to be seen. Gandalf jumps back on his horse, rides to the Shire to find Frodo and give him the ring, and so begins the tale.

This is not far off what the writers of this travesty have done to "Wizard's First Rule." It proceeds to get not better, but far, far worse.

Far better off to just read the books and give this joke of a series a pass.
