oh really? I wish I'd known that before I saw it at the movies.
Yeah the whole indian guy being all "this is my inner skin ta moko ancestor spirit shit" was a bit off, but probably only bothered kiwis.
I thought that it felt a bit empty, as in considering how large their fleet was, there were almost no actors/extras, so all the sets felt eerily deserted. Also yeah needed more interaction between the kids and more of the training room stuff to actually show how intelligent he is. As it was, he didn't really have that many chances to demonstrate his strategic ability.

As far as I remember he did discover the Queen on the first book. Then he carried the Shella off with him and became some sort of preacher on "Speakers for the Dead".

Finally got around to watching this last night.

I guess I didn't hate it quite as much as I was expecting, but was still pretty terrible.

Pretty much agree with Lurch's review. Pacing was way too fast, especially battle school. Mazer was fucking shit tattoos and shit accent.
