Not how i expected.
After being advised by people that this was an extremely worthwhile film to watch (i had always been sceptical because the book is my favourite), so i bought it and i have to say that i was extremely disappointed with it.
there were so many things in the book which were either cut out or changed. there have been so many great adaptations such as the shawshank redemption, which were even better than the book, but this film completely let down the masterpiece of the book. the actors were ok even though Bill hardly ever stuttered!
I know it was a 'made for TV' film, but i think the time could have been taken to make it better than what it was. if it had been given the same budget as a film for the theatre it could have been a lot better (esp. the spider). most of the emotion etc.. was lacking which made for an all round shockingly disappointing film! i wish id never watched it so then it would not lower my opinion of the book.
i know its only a film, but in order to make adaptations you must stick to some of the basic facts, not blur them altogether! if this was a film in its own right it would be great, but as an adaptation of a book, it is weak.
i think that the time should be taken to remake this in all its glory! it deserves that much!!
