Review written 2005-10-06
I thought this one was great - and a good start to the all-day-movie-day. This was the best movie that I saw out of the day with the exception of The Incredibles (which I had seen previously).
The movie inspired me to start reading the books since it is based on the first three books in the series. I read the first book, which fortunately I got as a package deal with the DVD. I thought that I would enjoy it, but I think that I'll pass on reading the rest of the series. More about that in my book reviews section...
Overall, I did like the movie (much better than the book), and I look forward to more movies in the series.
