Not the same story as the book, but still good
Reviewed in Canada on May 30, 2020
I finished reading the book, then immediately put the movie on. That was both a good and a bad thing. The movie does not reflect the book except at a superficial level: the characters are the same, with the same general plot line, but there's so many differences that the movie is a different story line than the book. Of course, that's to be expected when trying to condense a story into a two hour movie. So, for those who expect the movie to reflect the book, you'll be disappointed.
For those who want a good movie, then you'll be happy. This is a fun movie to watch, with excellent production values and a tight story. The characters are engaging, and the soundtrack helps push the story forward. There's a bit more love story in the movie than the book, but that's fine. Overall, a really enjoyable movie (and one that will show off a decent surround sound system!).
