In the first lock picking scene ranger is picking a door knob. The tension wrench used is being held with a full grip and rotated CCW. The CCW may be correct but, tension wrenches are turned with a light pressure of the thumb to receive "feedback" from the pins. Gripping a tension wrench like this would make it almost impossible to pick a lock. See more »
I've read all the books and you know what... good job.
Not too bad an adaptation. A movie will never be the same as the books. If you translated it directly, you'll probably have a film of 5 hours. Katherine Heigl was believable and the guy who played Ranger was bang on the money. Pleasant way to pass a few hours; shame they don't make more.
