Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Everything starts somewhere, although many physicists disagree. There is the constant desire to find out where - where is the point where it all began. But much, much later than that, the Discworld was formed. Drifting onwards through space, atop four elephants on the shell of a giant turtle, the Great A'Tuin. It was some time after its creation when most people forgot that the very oldest stories of the beginning are, sooner or later, about blood. At least, that's one theory. The ...

An Excellent Adaption, Discworld Fans and Casual People will both like!
19 December 2006 | by Tseng15See all my reviews

This is the best Adaption of a book to movie I have seen, It is obvious Mr Pratchett and Mr Paul Kidby were closely involved in the making right down to the costumes and set design.

The first part of the movie will be a little slow and slightly confusing due to the fact there is a lot of stuff to be established, but by the second half things were happily and festively rolling happily downhill causing much laughter and merriment.

The actors have all equally taken to their roles, Everyone will have a soft spot for the main character Death as well as his school mam no nonsense Grand Daughter Susan especially.

One day, Discworld fans hoped for something like this and through out belief, It manifested. Watch it and have a Merry Hogswatch!
