Quotes

Nyra: My lord.
Metalbeak: Hm?
Nyra: Our work at St. Aegolius is very nearly done. The last of the flecks are on their way, and I've brought you an offering with beating hearts. Your new soldiers, tested and pure. One in particular shows exceptional promise.
Metalbeak: I'll be the judge of that. You. Soldier. Step forward. Yes, you're right to be afraid in my presence. What is your name?
Kludd: [softly] Kludd.

One Legend coming up!
13 October 2010 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. It might not be 100% accord to the books but that doesn't matter, the movie is fantastic, now if you liked the movie, go ahead and read the books, you won't be disappointed.

If you young children are easy impressive, you might not like them asking you "but why is the pretty bird doing those bad things?" and stuff like that, just imagine an epic movie, you know: knights, kings, queens and battles, but for children and adults alike, it depends on how much your kids know about epic stories and the implications of war.

The visual designs are awesome and the music is beautiful, it is a great story.
