Audience Reviews for Hogfather

Its a great movie I rate it 5 stars, watch it before ?

This looks stunning. The cast do the best they can, which is very good, but of course very little beats your imagination when reading the book. Also, in film you lose most of the commentary which sadly means the adaptation is less funny. However this can stand alone in its own right if you give it a chance (and stop thinking about the bits they missed out, like the pencil-eating bird (my personal favourite of the created creatures)). Notable performances for me were Michelle Dockery, Ian Richardson's vocal talents, and Marc Warren's mental case of an assassin (an almost perfect portrayal of what one would expect the character to be from the book).

Excellent fantasy film with a twisted sense of humor and top notch effects.
Think of it as a cross between Nightmare Before Christmas and Harry Potter.
