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.
This film stands alone as a good family adventure if not a little dark. However it does not manage to capture the feeling or full spirit the author created on the written page. Brenden fraiser is miscast as the father and this together with a chopped about story means dissapointment for fans of the Book.
This is a great adventure film you can watch with your family! I enjoyed it and would recomend it for all age groups. It's not Shakespear but it does encourage you to read to your children and it illustrates the wonderful adventures you can have just by reading a book.
This film was meant to rival harry Potter at christmas until they put harry potter back to the summer but in truth it wouldn't have stood a chance.The story goes all over the place and you don't know where they are from one place to the next.Looking for the inkheart book takes up a third of the film.With such a great cast it isn't a great movie.
