Trivia

Originally, Twoflower was supposed to be from the Discworld equivalent of China. To avoid the "Asian tourist" stereotype, white, American Sean Astin was cast in the role. However, Astin's hair was dyed black to play the part. See more »

It's not epic, but still good!
27 January 2009 | by thasaidonSee all my reviews

Despite all the "bad" reviews posted here, I guess it all depends on your personal taste. I, for one, loved this movie! But like the tag line says: "It's a pigment of your(!) imagination"

No movie will ever be as good as it's book (or books in this case). However, they did a very good job trying to capture the essence of the books and put it all in this movie.

The movie won't please everyone as you can see from other reviews posted here, but like Sir Pratchett said: "If I've would have written these stories to be a movie, I would have written them very differently".

All in all a good movie which will certainly please most people, regardless if they are familiar with Terry Pratchett or not.
