Disgraceful
19 December 2003 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

I was shocked to see how much a good story can be destroyed by a studio. Virtually the entire original story of the book was thrown out. Even the gender of the lead two characters was changed. A few of the principle characters retained their names from the book, but not much else. While the producers try to satisfy all demographics, the main plot get shot full of holes. The end product brings shame on the original Robin Cook Novel.
