This is the "remake" of the one year older TV-series. The series had a lengths of 640 minutes, this movie stuffs the story into 120 minutes. This is the main problem the film is fighting all the time. Actually everything else is decent or good: conversations, drawings, music, atmosphere – all is on an OK-level. Yet, pretty much everything is destroyed because you keep feeling that something is missing... or something is explained badly... or stuff simply is told too quick. The movie doesn't take the time that is needed to create emotions. - It comes down to this: The whole film no longer works because everything is shortened way too much.
I haven't seen the series, but I can imagine that it's a pretty good one. The movie had some great ideas and attempts. Still, I personally am not going to watch the show. Simply because I know exactly what will happen. This movie should have a warning printed on itself saying: "spoileralert".
