I'd call this a really beautiful, verbatim video illustration of a novel - very careful, but I missed the author's approach and courage a bit
+ Massive dimensions to highlight the Desert Planet and the Universe around it
+ Epic music / sound supporting the epic scenes
+ Book readers can be proud how the story is presented
+ Excellent use of slow frames and bringing details to the forefront
+ Cast includes multiple actors / actresses who fill the screen
+ Select 3D if possible, it supports the movie and I forgot that I have 3D glasses
Fear is the mind-killer.
I mean, it's not bad, but the story is ultimately a traditional hero's journey with a 'chosen one' and loads of dialogue about coming to terms about one's power and responsibilities. I've seen that before. I've also seen epic vistas accompanied by Hand Zimmer scores. Also, I don't go to the movies in order to wait for the sequel. The 3rd act led to nothing, and I felt quite underwhelmed. Maybe I'm just getting tired of blockbusters.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
