Musings:
I heard this one was good so I had to give it a go. It took me a while thought. And as always, rather slow moving. The movie take its time.

I liked the historical beginning. I had only seen this other poster so I did not realise when it would take place. The thief falls in love with the dying woman. And look there is magic around, and dark powers. Yes I really had no idea what it was about. There was a whole world not known to others.

I liked Farrell, that accent was not bad either you know. Crowe was a nice baddie, even if I really did not get why he wanted him dead. Good characters.

And then it moved to the present era...no more about that.

A good movie. But yes for some reason I keep picking the slow ones. Not slow as in bad, just slow. Not a lot of action and so on.

This is adapted from a book? Good to hear. The story sounds like something I'd like to read, but maybe as a movie I might get bored ;-)

The book was ginormous! To tell you the truth, I wish the lead was played by another actor. I'm not the biggest fan of Collin. :/

Jen Twimom said...

Hmmm... maybe?!

Greg said...

This one is new t me too. Looks like a good cast though.

Sophia Rose said...

I like the actors, but not sure I want to watch a slow one, either. I fall asleep so easily these days for shows and movies.
