Don't blame the film crew for lack of technical knowledge
7 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie is based on the novel with the same title: one and eight.

Although everything depicted in the movie is extremely close if not identical to what was described in the original novel, the original novels is still much better.

Obviously, in a movie that is less than two hours long, you certainly can not expect the film crew would include every detail that is in the original novel, but there are still things the film crew could do to improve the quality of this film. For example, one obvious shortcoming of the film crew is its lack of technical knowledge, more gadgets were put into the movie for the visual effect, but some are not the products of the time, or the local region.
