Being the bookworm that I am, I remember reading this book back in middle school when it first came out. I loved these kinds of fantasy, young adult fiction novels. But, I never saw the movie until we had to for these reviews. Let’s just say that I was not impressed. The beginning started out strong and had potential, but the story was predictable (maybe because I read the book). The acting also could have been better, but the special effects were good!
Grisham thought that this movie was “hot garbage.” He thought the plot was stupid, but he also hates the fantasy genre. He said that he would rather watch Twilight, when in fact, so would I. The movie was also too long, coming in over 2 hours.
Grisham – 1/10
Sam – 3/10
