Summary: While I am sure this movie has done well I can not watch it. All that holds three discs is a cardboard box. I bought all three for its value, but only find that the digital copy is the only disc set in place for protection. The DVD is scratched because of the packageing and so it the Blu Ray. Therefore, I can not watch the movie which I purchased. My advice to all is not to buy the combo pack. You will more than likely find two scratched discs as I have.
Summary: An adaptation of a book can't be completely faithful. We all understand this and accept it: There just isn't space even in a two hour movie to include everything which happens in an entire novel. But this travesty wanders so far away from the source material, introducing an unneeded quest for magical swords and a pointless "big bad" invented from whole cloth which adds nothing to the story but merely takes time away from the relevant.
Summary: I felt really disappointed when I saw this film. Sure Ben Barnes was great eye candy in this movie but other than that there wasn't anything to enjoy. The book was this adventure story showing the change of Eustace, a self-centered, no-nonsense boy who didn't believe in anything. The movie was a flash from one island to another showing some made up villain in green smoke which was half-fast and not even slightly thought out.
Mom read this to me every year... and hated the movie.

Summary: I really hope people read this and wait to watch this movie until they can rent it for $1 at redbox. It was awful. Many people have already discussed the primary problems with the film via their *spoiler* reviews... but I have to add my vote in a negative direction. They took the islands out of order. Eustace didn't even try to remove his own dragon skin. They ruined several of the lords. They MADE UP crap about a sword and "dark mist".
