Just got back from watching it. It was a decent flick, not great. Obviously they left it open for part 2 (or 3 or whatever). Don't remember much from part 2, mostly it was training, with a few big parts (I don't want to spoil it for those of you haven't read it). I think you could easily gloss over a lot in book 2 if you were going to make a movie about it, so if the guy ever finishes the series it may be possible to combine 2 and 3, if he finishes it in 3. That was a mouthful.
My buddy watched it and he hasn't read the books and he said the same thing, it was ok. He was a trooper sitting there watching it with me *****ing, 'that wasn't in the book. that wasn't in the book. that wasn't in the book'.
