A waste of time and effort and talent! - Awful film of an excellent book

This is a film adaptation of a really quite excellent book - sorry to say that the film did not meet expectations at all. It was disjointed, had no conclusion and was mostly just plain muddled.

The only positives are that it was well acted and shot nicely.

I'm unsure what the screenwriter was doing really though - to mash an excellent book up that way and regurgitate it into this mess seems a travesty.

A waste of time and effort and talent!

Ghastly

I stuck it through to the end, mainly because the cast are so great. Normally. But nothing could save this film. The script and over-talking and intercutting made it all a jumbled mess.

There was no one to root for. And the ending? It's like it ran out of steam and subdural ideas and appalling dialogue.

A killing at the end might have saved it. But I was beyond caring.

Fisticuffs among bros, I've seen too much of that lately in more films and series than I can count.

Spare me.

No ending?!

Great actors. But the movie is so rubbish. Dropping from one plot to another. Dragging and dragging and leaving you without ending at all
