I was fortunate enough to catch the premiere of this movie and I am endlessly pleased that I did so.
There have been comments about the miscasting, but from what I have seen, this is mostly relating the movie to the original. All of the people that I talked to said that they liked it and that the actors portrayed the people really well. These comments came from natives of New Orleans.
The movie itself is gripping throughout most of the some 2 hours. The visual and auditory effects do a great deal to enhance the story. It is evident that the actors put a lot of passion into their roles and the fact that they returned to New Orleans for the premiere shows that a part of them went into the movie.
All in all, the cast is great, the sound is great, the movie is great.
