the book was much better
19 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the story didn't stick to the book at all. You might enjoy it if you haven't read the book but the book is much more thrilling and exciting. I was very happy when I bought this movie but as I watched it I felt it was a waste of money. The acting wasn't great and the movie is nothing compared to the book. You can watch it but only if you have nothing else to do. Some parts of the movie are exciting especially the description of the area but the movie is dull and made me want to go to sleep. The director misses some important parts that the regular audience has to ponder why this happened and why this didn't happen. I didn't like it and I doubt any people will. 4.5 is fair by the rest of the people but i give it a 3
