some books just don't translate to the(big or small) screen
6 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this movie was very disappointing.not only was it exceedingly depressing,but it had zero suspension or tension.the whole thing was just one long drag. some people might like it,but it definitely is not my cup of tea.i haven't read the book,but i'm sure it is heads and tails above the movie in every respect.clearly many books do not translate well onto the screen.i won't say the acting was bad,because the actors had nothing to work with.this movie is truly one of the most tedious and hardest to get through,though not the worst movie i have ever seen.but if you read the book first,you will likely be very disappointed in the movie version.this is just my opinion,of course,but i'd have to give "Mortal Fear" 3/10
