Audience Reviews for Scarlett

It both succeeds epically and fails epically at the same time. As an adaptation of the incredibly weak novel Scarlett, it's a triumph. The mini-series manages to hold the audience's attention while the novel was a complete snoozefest. However, as a sequel to one of the greatest movies ever made, it can't help but pale in comparison. The costumes and dialogue are impeccable, as are the actors. Joanne-Walley is a good Scarlett, and Timothy Dalton is surprisingly badass as Rhett. But there's too little plot and way too much talking. This is like a 6 to 8 hour special that could have just been 2 hours at maximum, if the numerous conversations had been trimmed down. Very mixed feelings about this miniseries, but overall, if you're a hardcore fan of Gone With the Wind, and you'll take whatever you can get from the franchise, see this series. Everyone else will probably be bored by it.

Not bad,but not even close to Gone with the Wind.I got use to Joanne Whalley not being Vivien Leigh playing my beloved Scarlett, my Favorite Heroine of all time, she actually did a good job cosidering the Tiny Shoes she had to fill.Scarlet goes to Ireland to start over after losing Rhett & has a new Love Interest.It is worth watching,but don't expect the Epic that GWTW was

Despite all appearances to the contrary, this is actually quite good, but then I liked the book it's based on. A completely miscast Scarlett notwithstanding, it only fails in its ambition. I loved Colm Meaney as the tragic Irish cousin, Sean Bean playing an evil landlord love interest and a young Tina Kellegher (Niamh from Ballykissangel) who gets a particularly affecting story. Where it succeeds is in its portrayal of Ireland and the Irish, which is unusually subtle for once. However it needs more Rhett as Timothy Dalton is a suitable successor to Clark Gable, just shame about Scarlett herself.
