51 out of 64 people found the following review useful.
Excellent adaptation, 31 May 2010
Author: jsimonbennett from United Kingdom

Of the three Sky adaptations of Pratchett's discworld novels this is by far the best. The storyline is true to the book although,as with the other two discworld films, since the history has not been covered by previous stories, more explanation is required which can get in the way of the plot on occasion.

Clair Foy's Adora Belle Dearheart is a little too jovial and Charles Dance is not quite menacing enough as the Patrician. Nonetheless the performances are very good and certainly believable enough for a fantasy world.

Sir Terry's influence on the script is obvious and the Post Office building is magnificent in it's conception.

If Sky can keep this up then I look forward to adaptations of the witches and watch novels with eager anticipation.
