much too fast
23 April 2011 | by pvdlooSee all my reviews

I am not gonna spend to much words about this movie just because it isn't worth it. I rarely write reviews but after watching this one I feel the urge to do so. I think someone in college can do a better movie than this. I have read the novel and I thought it was very good so I was curious about his movie, It doens't come close to the quality of the book.

It's all to fast, no suspense at all. Bad and much too fast dialogues, story is and stays a riddle. Book was very clear though. I was so amazed how a good book and very good story could be so messed up. Amazing.
