Poor adaption of book.
11 April 2002 | by (Cedar Falls, IA) – See all my reviews

It coulda been better. This movie has a very rushed feeling about it. And the movie doesn't match the book.

It does have a great sense of emotion in this movie however.

5/10

Quality: 7/10 Entertainment: ? Replayable: 3/10
