Because everything moves too fast, and there are too many shortcuts that leave the original story in the dust and the viewer confused, the characters loose all their carefully crafted depth Cornelia Funke had given them, making this story superficial, rushed, too confusing and gave it a shallow Hollywood ending. However, it might be quite enjoyable for children who haven't read the book if an adult explains to them what is actually happening. I personally didn't care for the artistic licence the film took with changing the original story.
it was a barely 'ok' movie.... truely sucked in comparison to the book. they totally screwed with the plot and the characters, making it totaly impossible for the 2nd and 3rd books to become movies as well.
Absolutely sucked. The book is muchh better. Wasted $6.
Love Brendan Frasier. Loved the movie. Loved the book series.
A symbol of hope for the fantasy genre
