Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Pillars of the Earth

Epic drama historic drama based upon Ken Follett's magnum opus has a lot of entertainment value and looks good on screen though a bigger budget would have helped a lot - especially in the battle sequences. Natalia Wörner has a very thick German accent that is distracting and disappoint somewhat and the series ends with an unsurprising "villain falls down to his death" scene that disappoints.
