I don't understand why they decided to make the movie in the middle of the book series. Its like starting to watch Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings without seeing the first two movies. And there is not much background information given. If you read the books, you will understand some things, but if you didn't, it can be very confusing. For example, what is the deal with the "true names"? What's up with Arren's shadow? Why did the wizard in the beginning forget his spell?
Still, even after reading the books, this movie has some minor plot holes in it. But I think it all stems from where in the story they decided to make the movie at. Perhaps if that horrible Sci-Fi miniseries didn't exist, we would be talking about an epic movie here.
For all its flaws, the movie remains enjoyable. The art is fantastic, the pace flows nicely, and there is plenty of action and drama. Disney also did a good job with the voice acting.
I would give it 3 and a half stars.
