      Audience Member I thought it a touching story overall, but doesn't really develop the characters including the main one in the story until the very end which is kind of bizarre Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member It is terrible. after reading the book I sat down to watch this "thing". I recommend you skip this film. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie although they should've show mina's parents Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the most boring movies I've watched, however the book was even worse. What's John Simm doing in something like this? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely loved this film! I read the book when I was in secondary school and never got round to watching the film so I finally have and I have gotta say, the film was better than the book but saying that, it was quite a few years ago that I read it so I may have forgotten how detailed it was/wasn't. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review don s Based on a children's novel, this is a family friendly British TV movie with fantasy elements. It teaches the lesson that things are not always what they appear. It moves a bit slowly and doesn't explore the origins of Skellig, but overall it is enjoyable and has a satisfying ending. Decent.

      PJ Nabarro Patrick Nabarro I can't help but feel if the film hadn't been quite so reverent to its source material, it could have fashioned a more distinctive end-result. Rated: 3/5 Nov 5, 2018 Full Review Brian Costello Common Sense Media Fantasy mixes with emotionally intense family drama. Rated: 4/5 Mar 1, 2013 Full Review Brian Orndorf Even though I haven't had the honor of reading his book, I'm fairly sure Almond deserves an apology for this film.
