The Colour of Magic Review.

This TV-film incorporates Pratchett's first two books, 'The Colour of Magic' and 'The Light Fantastic'. Let me start by saying; I thought it was wonderful.

It kept to the books very well and had a shocking array of famous faces; anything with Tim Curry, Jeremy Irons and David Jason has to be great. I've not seen any new material from Tim Curry in a while, and was pleased to see, he... read more

The production quality is stunning, the Discworld has been recreated in lavish detail. There's great actors in every possible significant role. In other words, no expense seems to have been spared to make this the best possible adaptation of Terry Pratchett's work. And it's mostly wasted, it was just plain boring, all the great ingredients just don't come together at all. I've only seen the first ... read more

And it's mostly wasted, it was just plain boring, all the great ingredients just don't come together at all. I've only seen the first part and I have no desire to watch the second part and that's a great disappointment. Better direction and scriptwriting to go with all the other things would have been appreciated.” read more

The Colour of Magic Review.

“This TV-film incorporates Pratchett's first two books, 'The Colour of Magic' and 'The Light Fantastic'. Let me start by saying; I thought it was wonderful.

It kept to the books very well and had a shocking array of famous faces; anything with Tim Curry, Jeremy Irons and David Jason has to be great. I've not seen any new material from Tim Curry in a while, and was pleased to see, he hasn’t lost his touch. His trademark smirks and villainous nature; made my day.
