Swashes are to be buckled at all times.

Alatriste.

There’s really nothing much that can be said about the film that hasn’t already been said in other reviews. It’s episodic and the narrative is incoherent. I watched a short segment when I got it home yesterday afternoon and immediately recognised all the symptoms. The first book would make a decent film in its own right. The second is a prolonged episode which might be worth a few minutes in some other film, but wouldn’t be interesting enough to be a film in its own right. As for the rest, I haven’t read the books yet.
