Normally movie reviews aren't really my bag, but that's OK because this isn't so much a film critique as much as it is the issuance of a Code Orange "High" Terrible Movie Alert.

Horrible acting, horrible pacing, horrible direction, horrible effects and production values, and a script that absolute butchers what is one of the best fantasy novels of the past decade or more. On Metacritic it's got a rating of 40/100, which is far too kind.

Do not see the movie if you've read the book, because you will be sorely disappointed. Do not watch the movie if you think you may read the books, because it would only taint the experience.

Just a heads up.
