Quotes

Matt Ellman: [to Sam] So now, if I do this, how do I know you'll keep your end of the bargain and help me find Jessie?
Allegra Braccioforte de Venezia: You don't. It's a quandary, I know, but... look at his face. Would this face lie to you?
Matt Ellman: In a heartbeat.
Samuel Clemens: [dryly chuckles] It's true - I'm a habitual mendicant, but I pay my debts, not because I'm honest, but because I dislike intensely being obliged to another man. So, if you give me your assistance you will have my help in my return. Measure for measure.

made me want to read the book
5 April 2010 | by sstoSee all my reviews

well, guys, i don't know how to start this one as i wasn't fascinated with this movie, but not entirely disappointed with it either. the main point is that the story got me enough to want to read the books. had i read them beforehand, perhaps i wouldn't have liked the movie, but as i haven't - for me it was an OK movie. the fact that it was made for TV explains a lot about the budget and acting. let me share a few words about that: firstly, i guess - maybe i'm in just a good mood, or maybe i accept that not every movie can have a Transformer/Terminator/StarTrek visuals; in the end, if you're a grownup sci-fi fan and have seen it all, perhaps you can accept the lack of effects. now the acting is somewhat more bitter an issue, irritating at times, but like i said, i'm a forgiver this time and will blame it all on the director and writers. there were a few attempts to create more sensible moments, but they rather failed to touch. i'll stop here and just say - you maybe disappointed, but its not a horrible movie, its made for TV, so the standards are low; the story is developed enough for a person not familiar with the books to get interested and keep watching to the end.
