Andrés Ballesteros’s review published on Letterboxd:
dissapointed at the rehashed audiovisual version of one of my childhood's favourite book series. pretty boring and shallow,
it was evident the budget was not sufficient to cover the vast universe they should've created.
plus, they tried to make it an appealing movie for kids (which really hurt the storytelling) instead of going for a teen audience (hunger games, hun) that could've also seduced the -now adult- original readers, thus appealing to a much larger public, both older and younger than the target group.
didn't expect much, anyways.
