User Review

Mediocrity at its finest.

Rating: 5/10


Well, it was neither the worst nor the best movie I've ever seen. It
was a testament to movies that you should watch as a last resort when
browsing your rental place. Parts of it truly bugged me, like the
unparalleled clarity to the viewer of what any rational human being
would do, but, if you're fairly consistent about ignoring rationality,
it shouldn't be a problem. I'm told that this movie didn't follow the
book (the friend who accompanied me rather vehemently pointed out
differences). It's hard to really point out what was wrong with this
movie: the acting wasn't terrible, the characters were fine (albeit a
little weak), and the story was sound. However, it just leaves you
unsatisfied at the end, and you find yourself chuckling at some of the
effects. It was nothing special, but it's not the worst movie either.
