Volume 1 

Art: Very good and clean. I like the shading used and the boxes aren’t all squished.

I bought these because they’re Pokemon and fully admit, I may not have bought them otherwise. The reason? They are very skinny. 96 pages skinny.

“How are they going to give me a good story when they’re so short?” I asked myself.

Very well is the answer.

I really like the introduction and premise of the set up and I like the group of characters and just the fact that it is a group, rather than one main character is fun. Despite only being 96 pages, it didn’t feel too rushed. (I’d still want more though. #greedy.)

Volume 2

Art: Still as lovely as the first volume. The pages feel rough though, but that’s just a me thing.

This book completes setting the scene, who our bad guys are ect. Again, love the group of main characters we have. A really diverse set of characters. So many questions to answer and exciting things to happen.

I was genuinely surprised by how good these volumes are. Mainly because of how few pages each book is. The story moved very smoothly and I’m looking forward to the next one!

I have never watched the TV series so I can’t compare the two. I can only give you my impression of the film. I was interested in this because British comedy appeals to my funny bone.

To me, this film smacks of fan service for all those people who love the TV series, not a bad thing, but it isn’t going to do well if it doesn’t appeal to anyone else.

ALTHOUGH! The cinema was fairly packed, (for my cinema), and there had to be at least one person who loved the TV series and yet no one laughed except once or twice.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I was bored to tears. The plot , of what there was, was so slow. Eventually, I was just waiting for it to end.

It focused mainly on one or two of the men in the home guard. I was disappointed that most of them took a back seat. Michael Gambon was my favourite, but he was hardly in it.

I haven’t much to say about this film. Those who love the TV series may be the only people who’d enjoy this film, but I can’t guarantee that because, as I said, I haven’t seen it.

To sum up, Not funny, So slow, Dull

Was it worth the watch? No

Would I re-watch? No

Stars: 2/6
