Ok I'll be the guinea pig. This is a mess, but in a boring, formulaic way.

Elba is acceptable, but Matthew McCaunawhatever is totally phoning it in.

I've only read the first book, but as far as I can tell, this movie has nothing to do with the books. Like, at all.

DNF. Took a slam instead. Much more satisfying.

My best friend's a huge fan of the books. He just finished watching this and sent me 40 angry messages. The term "POS" was used like 60 times. He wants to burn things.

I have a feeling this movie is going to be WAY better for non-fanboi's.

I'm not sure why the movie is getting such piss poor reviews. It was good and rather fun. I'm not sure why it was only 95 mins long. The seriously minimized and somewhat nonsensical plot really would've benefited from another half hour. Time to breathe and create a world.
I only read two or three of the books, and that was over ten years ago. Anyone have any remarks about how they relate to the books or where a sequel might go?

Does the generally negative critical and box office reaction to this mean the TV series is dead?

Saw it today. It's a 95 minute action movie spanning worlds, with an epic backdrop. I have not read any of the 8 books. I think it was both well acted and well produced. However, the story wasn't given any time to breathe or develop. Some of the more serious scenes even made me chuckle a little to myself (the boy is strong with the shine). It felt a bit like a movie that was loosely inspired by a lot of other movies, especially young adult movies, more than something that came from a series of books. All in all it was worth seeing, but nothing special.
