User Reviews

Book portrayed successfully
28 February 2014 | by Md-khoconSee all my reviews

Director Mr Florian Baxmeyer portrayed the Book of Robert Arthur successfully on this Movie.Screenplay was nice written by David Howard.I'm a big Fan of "Three Investigators" Book series. In our country this series recognized by Rakib Hasan. We called it " Tin Goyenda - Kongkal Deep" On this movie acting of 1st Investigator was brilliant, also others did great too. Music was just great. They used some rural songs of South African territories. We didn't saw any Special effects on this Movie. No horror & nudity. 100% for kids and Family Movie. Personally i want's to say Casting wasn't good enough. Three investigators weren't brave although it was described in book they were very brave. Dialogue wasn't good enough. I wanted more thrilling scenes on this movie, I had expected more from this movie. I can say , it was nice try. We expected more adventures from movie. We didn't found nothing ! For a tight budget movie crews were did great. Thanks for their efforts on this movie. Sorry, 5 out of 10!
