A horrible way to sacrifice a good story
7 December 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie is probably the worst film ever made from a book! The screenwriter and director had no idea of what made the books so thrilling and loved by all Swedes. In their ignorance, they turned the biggest movie project in Sweden's history into a joke. The only good parts are long episodes with beautiful scenery and music, but the time spent on those parts are balanced out with shorter dialogues. Even if I read the books twice, which I have, I don't follow the story.

Now to the worst parts - the war scenes. If you've seen Kingdom of Heaven, you know what an army of thousands should look like. In Arn it's more like: "Oh no, I'm so scared, cause here comes the bad guys, all twenty of them! How are we gonna make it"? I would rather laugh at a computer fake of 20 000 people than to see an approaching army of twenty people, zoomed in and all so you only see ten of them. It is without question a joke, and I regret paying money to see this film.
