Nice review. Saw it Friday with my son-in-law and my grandson. All enjoyed it.
My grandson thought they left some things out from the book -- he's got an
encyclopedic mind and it amounted to leaving out how they turned right out of
the corridor in the book and in the movie they turned left. Beyond that, we all
enjoyed it and isn't that a sizeable compliment.
We really liked it. I would have loved for it to be about an hour longer so we
could get more of the actually story from the book up on the big screen but
Hollywood has it limits. It was good entertainment and I loved the effects.
