This film is a plodding, character-poor version of an exciting book. I was very disappointed in the lack of interest generated in the viewing of eccentric characters and situations. In the end, we don't care what happens to any of them. No excitement, no emotion. The murder scene, which could have been pivotal, is omitted and when the victim's clothing is discovered, it's an afterthought. I was expecting better.
