Really? I thought it was just too rushed in oh-so many places. It's a shame, though. While it was very different from the TV series, I loved the movie's more melancholic tone (maybe it has something to do with the fact that I was 14 when I saw it).
Had they made it into a trilogy to flesh everyone out and given Folken a more believable motive ("I'm not the heir, therefore life is meaningless and everyone must die."), I'm sure it could have been an incredible tale.
