Not bad.
20 December 1999 | by rjpurvesSee all my reviews

If you haven't read the book, well you're going to enjoy this. If you have read the book, you'll either like or hate this.

It all depends how much of a "STARK" purist you are. I personally thought the book was far more enjoyable after watching this.

Some people I know didn't like it for it's strong environmental message. Personally I thought it was a good thing.

Go watch it. It's not a masterpiece of film but it is good entertainment.
