Just saw this on cable this week. Kinda hard to give it a good or bad review. The good is the acting was excellent. Lot of A+ actors. And for the most part stayed to the book. But it just seemed like the plot was so fast. Hard to explain. Just seemed like went to fast and didn't get that feel. Ofcourse never going to get the feel of the book. It just didn't pull me in bc it went threw the story so quick. It's also one of my favorite books so maybe I'm being to tough on the movie. But definitely worth a watch

It's tough for a movie based on a novel to stay somewhat true to said novel and not move fast. Otherwise you'd have a 5 or 6 hour movie that nobody would watch. It's a tough thing for a director. Do you butcher the novel and chop out a bunch of plot or try to include everything but rush through it?
