Hitchhiker's Guide reviewed at Freeze Dried Movies [ Film & TV -> Review ]

More info on Film & TV: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy film has been reviewed at Freeze Dried Movies. Like most other reviews so far, it's extremely positive with the final score being 10/10. The reviewer appears to have read the books as well, which is a plus.
The performances were top notch, yes they weren't all British, but who says they have to be just because Douglas Adams was, Arthur was Arthur, Ford was Ford, etc. Besides, most of the characters are aliens and why should all aliens talk in a British accent? Mos Def really impressed me as Ford, I was worried that they would update the character make him from the South Bronx or Long Beach and homie him out, luckily for us he is Ford Prefect. It's nice to see someone from the hip hop community playing someone who isn't a spin on the usual rap characters, and he pulled it off quite well. Sam Rockwell as Zaphod was a great mix of George W. swagger and bumbling idiot (although some would say that those are one and the same). The way he carries himself in the film you can tell he was having fun with it and that translates into laughs from the audience. Zooey Deschanel was, at times, was a little dry as Trillian but overall her performance was very heartfelt. Alan Rickman's voice work as Marvin was perfect, it fit the personality like a glove and I wish there was more of him, there's quite a bit, but you can always use more. Martin Freeman was Arthur Dent, just as I'd pictured him, right down to the bathrobe, every bit as awkward and confused as I'd remembered him from the book, and yes he is British.
It seems like the weakest link in the cast is Zooey Deschanel, not Mos Def, though many suspected he might be.

There are some new images from the film as well which you can view in our gallery. Here's one I like:
