The scene where Will is sent back in time to a viking raid was originally longer. Will was did not arrive in the middle of the raid but arrived moments before the vikings attacked, spotting them sneaking towards the village and having time to realize what was going to happen. The vikings and the villagers where mostly played by re-enactors who brought their own costumes. As it happens, actor Alexander Ludwig later found great success playing the viking Bjorn Ironside in History Channel's series Vikings. See more »
In the scene where the snow comes through his window in his room in the attic at 13:42, the crow's feather is clearly covered quite a bit with snow in the close-up shot at 13:51. But when he picks it up at 13:54, there is no snow around. This is most readily seen in the full screen version. See more »
To whoever made this movie: I congratulate you. The only redeeming factor in this poor excuse for a film is that it will be nearly impossible to produce any of the sequels. (Though I'm sure that won't stop you.) You have managed to destroy anything and everything that made the book wonderful and unique. To be able to something this awful with such great source material surely takes a great amount of planning and deliberation.
What, it was on accident? That is impressive.
Honestly, if you're not going to do it right, don't do it - screenwriters, directors, actors - was there anyone who felt the need to perhaps point out that this thing was a piece of crap? My father, who has never read the books, said the movie was awful, and I would dearly love the home address of the people who destroyed my favorite fantasy series.
