I was so looking forward to Mike Newell's version which seemed to have the perfect casting. Granted that it is very difficult to tell this story in a couple of hours of screen time, but that is no excuse for making a film which rushes through the events in the book without providing sufficient depth of the characters and motivation for their actions for the audience to feel empathy with them.
Such a story deserves a longer screen time or alternatively cut out some of the secondary characters and provide more focus on the main characters.
The film has a very "Harry Pottery" look which is no surprise since Newell made one of the films in that series.
Performances are generally fine, with Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham Carter predictably stealing the main honors.
