Product Description

When Mo Folchart reads a story, the characters leap off the page. Literally. And that's a problem. Mo must somehow use his special powers to send the interlopers back to their world - and save ours. If ever a task was easier read than done, this is it. Mo and his daughter Meggie, aided by friends real and fictional, plunge into a thrilling quest that pits them against diabolical villains, fantastic beasts and dangers at every turn. Brendan Fraser leads a splendid cast (including Academy Award winners* Helen Mirren and Jim Broadbent) in an all-fun, all-family film of Cornelia Funke's bestseller. Follow Mo and Meggie into adventure more exciting than any ever read. Because it's adventure they're going to live!

4.0 out of 5 stars cute story gorgeous blu-ray Nov. 5 2009
By Cheryl TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Though the film's concept is intriguing, about a reader who has an uncontrolled ability to bring characters in and out of books, the story is a bit too limited (and linear). It's simple and easy too follow - I just wish this fantasy had more magic - there's so much that could have been done. The film's special effects are minimal. Instead authentic backdrops, costumes etc. give Inkheart a realistic look. The actors are good (Brendan Fraser, Paul Bettany, Helen Mirren, Jim Broadbent & Andy Serkis), but for me, the star is the scenery. These locations are spectacular on blu-ray. Unfortunately, there's not many blu-ray extras - a few short featurettes and some deleted scenes. (If you read the back cover, don't be confused, the entire movie is in high def - the non-HD material refers to the special features only.) Though I like this movie - overall, it's interesting (and much better than Disney's Bedtime Stories, which wasted a similar concept) - I'm happier to have it on blu-ray because it's gorgeous. (3.5 - 4 stars)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie Nov. 29 2009
By M. Cooper TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
An enjoyable and thrilling adaptation of Cornelia Funke's book Inkheart. Suitable for the entire family if the kids are old enough to handle some scary & violent scenes (official rating is PG). The fantasy element should appeal to fans of not only Funke's work, but also of Phillip Pullman's (His Dark Materials Box Set) and of course Tolkien's and J.K. Rowlings' as well.
After all, who has not desired to see a great book come to life before their eyes? Who has not wished to be in the room to see twelve dwarves and a wizard eating & drinking their fill in a cozy hobbit hole? Who has not wished they could try out the Subtle Knife for themselves? And who has not wished to be able to inflate a nasty relative and watch them float away over the rooftops?
Inkheart is the movie where fantasy meets reality head-on, and where being a really good reader just might get you more than you bargained for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Inkheart April 10 2011
Format:DVD
As a stand-alone movie this would have been fine; and some of the actors give great performances as the characters they portray (Brendan Fraser as "Mo", Eliza Bennett as "Meggie", and Paul Bettany as "Dustfinger"), but by-in-large this movie is very disappointing for any true lover of the original Cornelia Funke trilogy.

Other than a loosely-based translation of the main theme, the movie is almost completely unrecognizable as being the same one that was brought so wonderfully to life within the pages of the novels. While the character names are the same, and the Shadow is impressive, the movie strays so far from the books that it's hard to accept it as having any connection at all to the beloved story.

All movies have a tendancy to wander away from the paths taken by the authors of the novels they are adapted from, as producers and directors take creative license in the hopes of giving the movie more "impact" or of drawing in more "revenue", but most are able to remain true enough to the stories they are derived from that both those who are fans of the books and those who haven't read a word are able to enjoy them. The Harry Potter movies are a prime example. This movie, however, takes so many liberties with the plot that it renders it practically unrecognizable.

I couldn't put the novel down. I woke up wanting to sneak in a few pages; I stayed up late at night preferring to get lost within its pages to going to sleep. The movie, however, lost me almost from the beginning, and left me shaking my head wondering: "Why in the world would they do that?" I shut it off no less than twice and actually walked away from it completely for a couple of hours before ever going back to finish it.
