Bag of Bones (2011)
First half left me undecided, second half decided it: bad.
First off, I'll start by saying that although I like the book a lot (especially from page 300 on), I'm not one of those people that gets upset by every minor change to the story line. I actually think it was kind of smart to have Max the one to kill Sarah, and Lance try to kill Kyra. It kind of ties everything together better. But besides that, the movie does little right. Well, Pierce Brosnan was pretty good, but I just felt bad for him in this dreck. The main problem is Mick Garris. He's a **** director, he doesn't know how to build tension, and the special effects (tree face, anyone?) were HILARIOUS. And the two best scenes in the book, Mike being forced into the lake, and the barbecue massacre, were shortened and drained of all suspense, which makes me feel like the screenwriter didn't even like the book if he has this little respect for it. Overall, I could have done without ever seeing this.
