My mom dragged me and one of my friends out to go see it and... I thought it was a bit pathetic. It felt very rushed and gave no chance to develop the characters. I was hoping that they could have made the movie better than the book (I do not like the book), but... *shrugs*. For the record, I found most of it pretty amusing, especially the dialogue. The "You look fit for battle" line had me and my friend laughing non-stop even when we got out of the theatre. Baby Saphira was very cute, though. However, I think the entire movie was more focused on the special effects than anything else.
