Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Everything starts somewhere, although many physicists disagree. There is the constant desire to find out where - where is the point where it all began. But much, much later than that, the Discworld was formed. Drifting onwards through space, atop four elephants on the shell of a giant turtle, the Great A'Tuin. It was some time after its creation when most people forgot that the very oldest stories of the beginning are, sooner or later, about blood. At least, that's one theory. The ...

Very good the first 45 minutes
2 December 2007 | by mfcpsSee all my reviews

Was seriously disappointed after the first 45 min or so.

Rambled. But acting always consistently good. Beautiful film work.

Some moments seemed disconnected.

The film obviously had a message but the clear meaning somehow escaped me. At times it seemed preachy without substance.

Action very good if you are into this sort of thing (which I would expect one to be to view it in the first place).

Although I love fantasies I did not love sitting through four hours of this film.

Have to say,(with a straight face),Hogwash!
