I’ve seen a few comments of how if you have not read the books, it will make no sense. However, I had never heard of the series prior to watching this movie and I found I quite enjoyed it anyway. It’s the classic battle between good and evil, not that hard to understand.

It has been many years since I read the book, so the film was new and fresh. Great fantasy. Both Matthew and Idris are excellent performers. The proverbial story of good versus evil never fails to capture our attention. Great story line.

If you're a fan of the books, you might find this disappointing. In an effort to fit 7 books into one movie, they removed most of the story and replaced it with a generic "save-the-world" plot. The casting was fantastic, but sadly the script just couldn't be saved.

I highly recommend reading the book series instead. It's phenomenal!

I agree with the comment by “7626Dee” this move was another waste of time - in fact when I “tried” to watch it I found it so boring in the first 30-45minutes I actually took it out and returned it!

Never read any of the books; young boy sees the future through his elaborate drawings. Bad guy, good guy trademark.

Wasted 2 very good actors on a script that didn't flow very well and occasionally made no sense. Consensus seems to be read the books!

A few critics had said that this movie made no sense if you hadn't read the books first. Well, I've never read a lick of Stephen King (though I've watched the first couple seasons of Under the Dome, and I've been watching Mr. Mercedes), and it made sense to me. I happened to really like it. Not sure if it's one I'd own, but I would probably stop on it if it ran on The Movie Network when I'm up early/late.

I love the movie, so entertaining . Hope there is a sequel.

This film took a fair risk with keeping its main two actors out of the picture for the first fifteen or twenty minutes and focusing on someone who I consider a relatively young unknown. I'm sure the books are better.

Ok, so I watched this thing twice, and this is what I've come up with. Having read this series of books years ago, I was able to follow along with the film. However, if I hadn't read this story before, I would not be able to figure out what the heck was going on. The film was very well made, well acted, special effects were great...but, as there were 8 long books behind this, it was like trying to tell the story of the entire Star Wars saga or the whole Lord of the Rings tale in 1 two hour movie. So much is left unexplained, and most of what is explained is really more of a passing breeze. There are a lot of hidden symbols and easter eggs for fans of the books, so there's a reason to watch. If you haven't read the books, do yourself a favor and read them!!! You will get a whole summers worth of entertainment instead of just 2 hours.

Script does not remotely resemble books from the master writer King, harmless and dull except this repeated chant:

“I do not aim with my hand; he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I aim with my eye.
I do not shoot with my hand; he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I shoot with my mind.
I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father. I kill with my heart.”
