Just appreciate the fact that someone tried to make a film out of this
19 May 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

At first when I saw the trailer for this, I dismissed this immediately thinking that no one, in particular a fan made film could possibly make a decent film out of one the best game franchises ever made. But hey I saw it on youtube and I thought to myself 'well it is a fan made film. I'm not expecting a great film so I'll be open minded'. And I'm glad I did because the film wasn't actually that bad for what it is worth.

First of all, it is based on Ocarina of Time's plot but loosely. They made some changes which I didn't mind. The casting of the actors - David Blane as Link is so so and that wig doesn't help him. He seems to spit out his lines with not much feeling in it. Hannah Fierman as Zelda does an OK job as the princess, though she cries too much in the film and sometimes makes it more laughable than believable. But the chemistry between her and Link I felt was surprisingly there.

A lot of fans of the game will be quick to point out everything they did wrong in this film but for me, I looked more at what they did well. The look of the film was done quite well. The Kokiri Forest was captured very well and it was amazing to see how they managed to do all of it. Saria's casting I thought was done very well and I really liked the actress's performance.

The visual effects - hmmmm well some were very dodgy I will admit. The action scenes feel more like you're watching a school play performed rather than anything real.

Ganondorf - Adam Boyer as the main villain. The make up and costume department did a decent job on him, though often his acting felt a bit forced too much to my liking. Though he does a good job at the evil laugh, in particular in the climatic battle scene.

The music is a highlight. I loved the soundtrack and what they did with a lot of the tunes from the game and it really added to the film.

Essentially, this feels more like a TV movie than a real movie and that is what it is. So if you are open to the fact a game like Zelda would be very difficult to adapt to the screen and make it work, I am quite impressed with this adaptation. Come on - it is a fan made film after all and thus if you simply let yourself go with this film, you might enjoy yourself. It is far from perfect but I still admire the makers for their determination to bring Zelda to the screen.
