Not similar to Lotr u all
12 September 2005 | by BatcheekSee all my reviews

first of all I'm sick of all the people who compare the book and everything regarding this material to Tolkien, which is absolute nonsense, is The Lotr trilogy the only fantasy you people know? it is VERY different, the books are much more realistic and modern. The characters are very real and they evolve with the story in a way which is not at all similar to The Lotr. When it comes to the film i must say it was a huge disappointment, I'm a huge Sapkowski fan, have read almost everything he has written to this day including his essays on modern literature and fantasy. That i guess is the main reason i didn't like the film, although there are some nice moments, like the man-on-man fights which look much more realistic than in most of Hollywood A movies( fights which do not involve the monsters because i consider them to be a joke). And of course Michal Zebrowski who has an incredible voice, imposing stature and has a palpable aura of presence whenever he is on the screen, which thank the authors is most of the time. Also there are a few funny moments and the scenery and music are also quite enjoyable. It is the dividing of the story, the timing and the complete change of story in certain parts that made me angry. A few episodes which are connected very weakly( in the movie, in the book the line of Ciri is much stronger and is given a lot of attention, it is after all the main topic of the saga) and i just didn't get the right feeling from it, thats all
