Redwall - The Siege (2005) Review
(More customer reviews)I have read the book of Redwall many times and when i saw the movie my first thought was 'oh god they've gone and slaughtered the book' but i decided to give it a try anyway, and boy was i right. things are swiched around, people who die in the book don't, they miss whole chunks and they skip out on all the big battles but the one thing i thought they got right was Basil Stag Hair. but though Basil is the commic relief they completly down played him. they do have many of the lines from the book but besides the battles one part i really missed from the book was when Basil had the rats chasing him and he was frolicking around them pelting them with dasies. i was so dissapointed with the way they made this. it makes Matthias seem alot stupider and less like the hero he is in the book. it also has cornflower dissing matthias. whats up with that? AND WHEN DOES CORNFLOWER HELP WITH THE SEARCH FOR THE TOMB AND THE SWORD!? to any who have read and liked the book i would not recomend this at all. it distorts the plot and adds background not mentioned in the book which makes no sence because who ever said anything about matthias wanting revenge in the book? Oh and its in episodes. the first disk has only the first four episodes which gets you to just after King Bull sparra trys to kill Matthias, he wakes up and it pretty much ends after that. To those who have read the book we all know that the Father Abbot agreed to defend the abby but not attack, but in the movie thing he is completly against any combat. its like he dosent care if people die. and no one really even cares about matthias, they all ignore him untill he does something dangerous or stupid. all in all it was a big dissapointment and to any redwall fans dont watch this, it will depress you.
