This is another of those well reviewed but not watched by the public movies. I read the series of books that the movie is based on and was looking forward to see what they would do with the story. Is it just like the book? No. Was it fun to watch? YES

As much as I enjoyed the cinematography and special effects on this movie I felt like there was something wrong. The story was good enough and the acting was fine but it was lacking. If it had of gone for a little bit longer but also had far more detail to it then I think I would have been happy but as it is the story felt like it could have been told in 20 minutes. My impression of it was that th... read more

" Note : Honestly, I have never heard of this flick before and it doesn't look very good. It is actually based on the novel 'The Dark is Rising' by Susan Cooper, which is part of a series of five books collectively called 'The Dark is Rising Sequence'. I guess we will never know what happened in those over books then... suggested by Leo"

“As much as I enjoyed the cinematography and special effects on this movie I felt like there was something wrong. The story was good enough and the acting was fine but it was lacking. If it had of gone for a little bit longer but also had far more detail to it then I think I would have been happy but as it is the story felt like it could have been told in 20 minutes. My impression of it was that the cinematography and special effects was just being used to mask the fact that there really wasn’t much effort put into and that it was being stretched out. Basically it turned into visual candy for the senses rather then being anything remotely in depth.

Funnily enough I still found it really engrossing for what it was lacking and it was enough to make me want to read the book it was ” read more

I thought the characters were well acted out in the movie and that the special effects were well done. There is a lot of adventure and excitement along the way. Some of the scenes may to a little scary for preschool kids. The rest of the family should en” read more
