Based on the movie - Not on the book
14 October 2020 | by imdb-773-34667See all my reviews

I've read Tom Wolf's facinating book. And I've watched Philip Kaufman's amazing movie. Both are fantastic. This however, is nothing but a tame school play. The actors all appear to be dead inside, the scenography is cheap and the SFX is all amateurish CGI, that looks outdated already. Do yourself a favour: Read the book, and watch i original movie instead.
