The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising

I haven't read the books but I have read their covers in the bookstore and even with such limited knowledge, I can say with certainty that the books have been done a disservice by this movie. Art direction is adequate but the limited budget was spent on a considerable quantity of acting talent who do their utmost to salvage what they can from a broken screenplay. Editing and direction are a complete bust. Aside from all that, it did provide a few moments of standard issue suspense. Lovers of the book should probably stay far away.
