At around 54 Minutes into the Film, Michael Shannons character Cpt. Beatty speaks to his men with a megaphone. This scene is completely mirrored, as Beattys Leathercoat has his Button Row now on the left side, and the 451 on the Fire-Truck is mirrored, too. See more »

Guy Montag: You don't.
Clarisse McClellan: When I see you burning up Eel's lives, you don't look nervous.
Guy Montag: That's because I'm very good at my job.
Clarisse McClellan: Hmm. Have you ever thought, even for one second, why you do what you do? You should try reading before burning.

Don't call it Fahrenheit 451 if you want to do your own thing ...
21 May 2018 | by Maria-decimaSee all my reviews

I'm all for creative new spins on ideas from great works, such as Ray Bradbury's F451, but just don't call it Fahrenheit 451. Another reviewer asked why so many negative reviews, well it's because when you choose to make an adaption of such a beloved book, you do the author and fans justice by sticking to the main themes of the movie and pivotal points and roles. If you want to make such a loosely based version, call it The Fireman or something. I don't want to be a huge fan of a book, get excited it's being remade, have the expectation it is going to follow the book because it's named as such, only to watch something that misses the mark. This was disappointing.
