I have to say that I was deeply disappointed in the movie.
I understand the need to make changes to adapt a book to a movie, things that just can't be shown visually, and the need to limit the length of the movie. However, many things were changed that didn't need to be changed, I guess in an attempt to make the story more interesting.
Moist lost all of his interpersonal skills and spent most of his time confused and complaining.
Groat & Stanley were both done very well.
I liked the way the golums were done (I know some will disagree), but I was disappointed that they all seemed to have cracks in the same places. I also thought they made Mr. Pump a bit stupid.
I really, really hated Mr Gryl. He talks way too much, looks like a vampire from a cheap 1930's film, and for some reason is all wet!
I liked the way Claire Foy played Adora Belle Dearheart, but I also think it's sad they had to make her into a romantic figure; fighting him so much, then giving in and riding around on the back of Boris.
And I thought that Reacher Gilt looked like the Penguin from Batman. Why'd they make him short, fat (or fat-looking?), and unpleasant?
I must say, fantastic work on the set, particularly the buildings and clacks towers.
