Wonderful Adaptation from the Novel
I have read (and re-read) the novel by Neil Gaiman, and I believe that the movie really captures the essence of the book well. I was a little skeptical at first while watching it, but I soon got over the minor changes to the storyline. In fact, many of the changes actually improved on the novel, such as the entire last twenty minutes or so of the film. I had always thought that the ending of the book was a little weak, even though it followed the pattern of many classic fairy tales. I also enjoyed the expansion of the role of Captain Shakespeare, which added a great comic element to the story. All in all, I think that this is a great adaptation of the novel, and I am looking forward to more films from Neil Gaiman's books.
