I loved the books by Tommy Krappweis and were very excited, when he announced to make a movie out of it. And the first movie is just great. Full of great characters (love Professor Weissinger, Maras mum, Loki and of course Mara herself - and a lot of smaller roles, like Larissa or the little boy, she mocks), an exciting story - I was always a fan of norse mythology and I read a lot of sagas in my time, so I liked the idea of an adventure about the norse gods - and much more. The special effects are very good - especially the lindworm and the music fits the story very well. all in all a wonderful movie for all fans of Harry Potter, Inkheart, Midnight Circus or Percy Jackson and similar fandoms. What I liked the most is, that you can see that the author himself worked on the movie. The inevitable cuts from the books made sense and the dialogs were just as funny as in the book. I so hope that we will see the second and third book made into movies.
