I first read The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult a few years ago and really enjoyed it and have since read it several more times. It is a very good story with really interesting twists and very fascinating and complex characters. I was a more than a little disappointed to discover that they were making it into a Lifetime TV movie.
And just like I expected, despite the good story that certainly has the potential to be a solid movie, it was transformed into a cheesy and poorly acted Lifetime flick. As you watch, you feel indifferent towards the characters and bored with the clichéd plot. Amazing how this great book could be turned into yet another run-of-the-mill Lifetime movie with the same worn storyline and boring characters.
