The movie could have been SO much better. Hollywood once again fu...ed up. And that cover is SO photoshopped.
appreciate the film may fall down for you for other reasons, but if you have not, try and see the alternate ending, the one the studio stepped in and changed to the theatrical release. it's much better. it's on all the releases to date as an extra, i think.This is one of those movies that could have been great but wasn't. Also, the Steelbook looks crap; blurry and badly photoshopped. It's like when you're watching a 3D movie as a kid and you take the glasses off to see what it looks like and you almost have an aneurysm and have to quickly put them back on.
couldn't agree more. the book is excellent, and also almost completely different from the film, which is very definitely an 'adaptation' of the source material. and it's not even that long.This is really solid.
Obnoxious recommendation no one solicited: read the book. So good.
