Worst book into movie I have ever seen!!!!!

When I first heard that Cook's book was going to be made into a movie, my first thought was of happiness. Mostly because this has been one of my favorite Robin Cook books of all time. But also because I honestly thought that it would follow the same plot in the book. Boy was I disappointed. Not only did they not follow the book, they rewrote the entire plot and came up with a different ending.

I must admit that I don't know what kind of budget they had but I could have made this movie better than they did. I had no problem with the cast, because the cast wasn't following the book.

I wish there were more production companies out there that would follow the original format instead of rewriting scenes, leaving out entire chapters, or changing the ending.
