The Hexer 2004 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Wiedzmin (The Hexer) is a Polish film based on the fantasy novels of Andrzej Sapkowski. The main character is Geralt, the White Wolf (as played by Michal Zebrowski, who also starred in “With Fire and Sword”/“Ogniem i Mieczem” and even played a short part in Polanski’s “The Pianist”) who slays monsters that harm people, but leaves the peaceful ones alone. The film contains several short adventures that lead up to a larger story.
Some people claim the film was not as good as the novels it was based on, but this is often the case with film adaptations. As far as I am concerned, the film was fairly entertaining. It was worlds better than “Dungeons & Dragons” (2000), but it was no “Lord of the Rings” (2002).
Directed by Marek Brodzki, Wiedzmin is 129 minutes in length. The film is spoken in Polish, with English subtitles. Wiedzmin was made in 2001 and I would say it is rated “R” by American standards. For swordfights, monsters, and dragons, Wiedzmin is a lot of fun.
