Wait for it !
1 November 2011 | by akkharkhan18See all my reviews

I am a big fan of this book ! In our country its not same as the original but seeing the 2 The Three Investigators movie now i know our edition is better then this . The story is really awesome as well as the charterers but i don't know what they did but i don't this film . Directing was not good . Script sucks . also the cast. they kinda ruined an awesome story . if they are trying to make another sequel the i have to say 'please please do something else with the money'

Its also my dream to be a Film-maker. And i swear if i ever get just one bit of a chance i will nail this story on everyone's mind . This book have some of the best story in this world . and if i had the chance i will do anything to make it perfect .
