Overview

Lord of the Rings fans take note, acclaimed fantasy author Ursula K. Le Guin's epic tale of wizardry and prophecy comes to life as never before in director Robert Lieberman's imaginative screen adaptation of her popular Earthsea novels. Adapted for the Sci-Fi Channel, the two-part miniseries chronicles the journey of a reckless youth who seeks to master the ancient arts and become the most powerful sorcerer Earthsea has ever seen. As Ged (Shawn Ashmore) begins to discover the vast potential of his true powers, he must face great adversity if he is to truly fulfill his destiny and reunite his bitterly divided planet. Facing dragons, love, and eventually death itself, Ged's path to power is as wondrous and alluring as it is deadly. Also starring Isabella Rossellini, Danny Glover, and Kristin Kreuk (of TV's Smallville), this miniseries premiered in late 2004.

Along with LOTR, Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea cycle ranks among one of the greatest fantasy epics ever written. If you have ever read the books, you will brain will twist in absolute agony upon seeing this movie. I found myself shouting out in abject terror every 15 seconds or less because of how much the story adaptain bothered me. If you have not read the books, get them and read them instead of watching this movie unless you want to waste a few hours of your life. Why is this TV adaptation such a monstrosoty? For one, it totally destroys the plot and characters set out in Le Guin's books--it does not even come close to representing the story; this film simply took the characters names and put them together in a land called Earthsea with a whole new story line. As if the mutated story was not enough, the CGI is sometimes of poor quality and the acting leaves something to be desired. If I could give no stars, this movie would definately rate it.

If you have never read the books I would definitely recommend seeing the movie. It is one of the better Scifi releases. However, if you have already read the books the movie is a terrible disapointment. The only similarities are the names and even those are twisted around. A few random events strung together do not tell the same story as the books do.

I actually watched this movie when it first aired on the sci-fi network. I sat there is suspence the WHOLE time. I couldnt wait until it came out on DVD. Its a tale full of adventure and trust. I highly recommend this movie.

The story follows that good will always triumph over evil forces, and it has a remarkable tale of a young soul growing into an adult.

An awesome movie! I first watched this movie when I was in California. My brother and I wanted to watch a movie one night so went to the movie store. We didn't know what to watch so we got Earthsea. I'm glad we did! The movie was great! It's highly recomended.

I watched this movie first with my brother, and I really liked it. It has just the right combination of terror and humor, and a twisting plot that keeps you in hopeful suspense. I am just reading Le Guin's books, and I must admit they are nothing like eachother. But the movie, as just a movie, is very good

I originally thought its production would be along the lines of Dungeons & Dragons, a nice little fantasy romp but without much substance. Boy, was I wrong! This is a full-blown series, with a well-developed storyline, great acting, and awesome visual effects. I found it to be very entertaining and highly recommend it!
