A truly unique story
14 July 2005 | by (United Arab Emirates, Dubai) – See all my reviews

I would say that both the book and the movie are worth a shot even though I prefer the book much better but the movie also is very captivating.

The only think I don't like about the movie is its horrible casting.

I don't like the boy who plays Sam or the actor who plays the LOVELY LOVELY LOVELY Damoon.

Weren't there better choices out there? Wasn't Sam supposed to have big black eyes, this boy's eyes are green or yellow I think! What do the hell the filmmakers think they were doing? The script is fantastic though and the score is unforgettable but the casting is just awful.

I prefer my own imaginary version of CJM I have in my mind.

I'd give a 9
