If you've read the book, be prepared to be thoroughly disappointed. If you haven't read the book, still be prepared to be disappointed.
Unsurprisingly, the film did not at all follow the chronological order of the book and had removed major scenes which if included would have not only helped to develop the film as a whole but made it a lot more interesting, and not to mention plot holes would not have risen.
The acting at best was mediocre, with the cute dog outshining the main cast. The pace of the film was surprisingly very slow, for an action packed film and ironically lacked enough action.
The development of characters was next to nothing. From the beginning it jumped straight to the end with nothing in the middle. There was no opportunity for the audience to empathise and the relationship between the characters was hardly explored.
The only positive to the film was the effects, which were decent and made the film just bearable to watch.
A very poor and disappointing film.
