User Reviews

Poor adaption of the books.
6 January 2016 | by AngusMcKSee all my reviews

Just finished reading The Elfstones of Shannara and am very glad I did otherwise I would have no clue what was going on in this very poor adaption. The story skips all over the place. Major characters are left out, others have completely different personalities and strengths than how you would have imagined them from reading the book. Someone clearly thought that rather than adapt the story for TV they could do a better job at re- writing the plot and the characters within than Terry Brooks. They overestimated their talent.

The budget seems to have been there. Great looking sets and costumes, so so special affects and reasonable attempts at portraying some of the demons. Perhaps more money could have been redirected towards hiring higher caliber writers and actors.

Long anticipated, this should have / could have been a serious contender to the Lord of the Rings / Game of Thrones. Unfortunately it falls way short in every aspect. So disappointing :(
