REVIEW: After being in the arks of New Line Cinema
for more than a year, finally we got the opportunity to see
Inkheart. A film based on a best-selling book of the same
name by acclaimed German author Cornelia Funke. A book
adaptation that barely meets expectations.
The main problem with this
adaptation has to be the screenplay. This is a screenplay
that fails to create excitement, adventure and imagination.
Ingredients which are the essence of a good adventure
fantasy film. It seems like the filmmakers were more worry
about keeping the PG rating than into adding some excitement
and darkness to film. For the most part the film is very
slow. It is only the cast, who gave the movie enough to keep
watching. The one character that I felt stood out was
Dustfinger played by Paul Bettany. He has been in my radar
ever since his performance in “A Knight Tale”. He was the
one that was able to make a real connection with the
audience with its mystery and comedy.
There is no doubt that this book had
the potential for being a great movie and it is a shamed
that the filmmakers where not able to take the best out of
this great book. Jeopardizing the possible adaptation of the
next two books in the trilogy Inkspell and Inkdeath.
The DVD is a double sided
disc including the widescreen and full screen versions of
the film. The picture is complemented with a 5.1 Dolby
Digital audio in English, with Spanish and English
subtitles. In terms of the special features the DVD only
includes a digital copy of the films, nothing more. If you want to
get and inside look at the making of the film you should go
for the Blu-ray version, which includes two behind the
scenes featurettes and nine deleted scenes.

movie! I decided to read the books too
and I am starting the sequil this week.
This is a great story that involves
imagination and excitement. Corneila
Funke makes you feel like you are right

book to read and I couldn't put it down.
The action is wonderfull. This is a good
book and movie for teenagers. I really
enjoyed and i hope you will too.
P.S. They are planning on having movies
