Too far off from the novels
6 March 2015 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I have read all the novels and thus had some expectations from the movie. While there were some funny and true to the novels moments, the tragedy severely overcame the comedy, which was not true to the novels. The atmosphere was completely reversed from the books and really made the movie unenjoyable.

While adjusting to their own story, the script is probably too bizarre to be funny for regular viewers. They simply do not explain enough to really be able to make a similar connection as with the novels. For someone who has not read the books the movie will most likely be offending as the characters are really not explained during the movie.

If you really want to enjoy the story, I can only recommend the books. Otherwise this movie was not the worst thing I've seen. The screenplay was good, the casting was OK, though somewhat twisted, and they made a complete script. So I will still give 4/10 overall.
