Andy Serkis plays the main villain, Capricorn, who is revealed to be a medium-level villain of the novel Inkheart in the movie, who has command of an unholy demonic creature made from ashes and fire. This is an interesting parallel to Andy Serkis' iconic performance as Gollum, who in the Middle-Earth movies, who is a monster-like villain who technically serves an unholy demonic creature of fire and ash: Sauron, the Lord of the Rings.

As well as the German, the Italian and the French on the multilingual sign are also wrong. The Italian says "non ci penso" ("I am not thinking") instead of "non ci pensare" ("don't think"), and the French has "gaspillar" for the correct "gaspiller" ("waste, squander"). See more »
His name's Gwin. And I know he looks charming, but you know what they say about books and covers.
Yes, I do. And I also know what they say about talking to strangers. Excuse me.
But I'm no stranger, Meggie.

I only watched this movie because the trailer looked new and the idea was an interesting one. I liked the movie but throughout the first half, you get the feeling that there is something big coming up and you just can't wait till it does. The ending was quite satisfactory considering what happens.
The actors were all well chosen for the roles they portray. The bad guys led by the evil Capricorn fulfill their role as a motley crew. There is a hidden humor amongst them which does not bore. The CGI animations were very well done especially the magical creatures and alike.
Overall, I would say that if you like Stardust, you will enjoy this one. Although, Stardust is still better in my opinion.
I give it 6 only because the first half drags on a bit long and takes sometime to move onto the real story.
