“The Film Has nothing in common with the incredible book of Cornelia Funke except maybe the names. The whole story ist bad, Has no emotions, no tension. The protagnonist is in fact more an antagonist and nothing young Kids should identify with. Lung is an selfashamed thick dragon who can Do nothing on his own, the Homunkulus Has no characterdevelopement. There is nothing to laugh, the jokes are flat, the Rats are not existing and the whole fantasy and mysterious charme of the book ist here lost to modern techniques like Skype, the Internet and parshipsites, a treaterous and filthy and egoistic cowardboy and dumb figures and places. Better never watch the movie and read the book(s).”
