Yup, I knew they were sitting on that review embargo to the last minute for a reason. That's too bad, but, not surprising as it's unrecognizable to the source material.

Well, duh. How would you pin a book to a movie screen and have everyone be able to read it?

Cheeky :p

He means their not faithfull to the storytelling and characters.

Not sure why so many hollywood guys, think they can tell a better story than the authors, and instead of sticking to story, go off doing their own thing.

Rarely is it better than what the author wrote.



what a shame!

Not surprised. I've only read books 1-4, but at no point did I ever think to myself oh this would make for a great action movie. Seeing the trailers was just like.....uhm.....ok

So reviewers are saying it is as bad as Valerian almost. I do not know what to believe.
