"Even the smallest of light... shines in the darkness"A boy's life is turned upside down when he learns that he is the last of a group of immortal warriors who have dedicated their lives to fighting the forces of the dark.
Worst adaptation EVER
I was beside myself with glee when I first heard of this movie. The
book it is based on has been a book I have read and reread as well as
given to children and adults alike over the years. So I was HORRIBLY
disappointed at the changes made in this adaptation. Key elements left
out, characterizations gutted, the mythos it was based on trivialized.
After such great adaptations as LotR, Narnia and the Potter books to
see this classic ruined was a sad sight.
The books concepts depend on British folktales and legends (Arthurian
based) and the movie seems to have tossed that aside in an attempt to
woo American audiences. The family is changed, leaving out the close
knit structure that is the basis of the story.
Don't see this movie. Don't let your kids see this movie. Do yourselves
a favor and read the book.
Someday someone will make this movie with an eye to the source
