    I just picked this up at a pawn shop for a measly $1! Reread the book recently, so am looking forward to watching this for the first time!

    Just my opinion, but the book was sooooo much better than the movie.

    I usually like the books better than the movies. i try to read the books first before watching the movies.

    I enjoyed the book immensely, but then I enjoyed the movie as well. For $1 you got a real bargain.
    I don't think you will be disappointed with the adaptation, if I was asked to categorise it as good or bad. I'd have to say, to use the parlance of the book, that it was a..
    "****eree"

    I liked the movie a lot, especially on subsequent viewings. I think the book is far superior, but the movie is still definitely worth watching.

    Well I have not seen the entire movie (just caught a bit of it on TV once) but I enjoyed the book. The above actor is one that I like watching so that did help a bit.

    I recently rewatched this for a Trivia Game. Not bad, entertaining, and watchable. It is definitely no Shawshank...but not bad at all :)

    The movie hardly does it justice.

    I like the book and thought the movie was an okay adaption- the first part showing the friends together is great but after it the army shows up it's kinda loses it for me. I can't get over the eyebrows that Morgan Freeman is sporting in his role- what were they thinking???? They're scarier than the Ripleys!

    The book is one of my faves, but I think this adaptation is actually pretty good. I own the movie and rewatched it recently and was surprised at how closely it followed the book, except the end!!! But I really liked Damien Lewis and Thomas jane(?)

    While I enjoyed much of the early part of Dreamcatcher (the book), I felt it lost its way when the army got involved and, overall, didn't really work. The film made a valiant attempt to capture the book but, inevitably, followed a similar rather rambling and unsatisfactory path through to its conclusion.
