The film has forgotten the face of its father, but isn't the train wreck people have been going on about.
If you're expecting a faithful adaptation, stop expecting that. It borrows bits from the books and makes something else. That something else is just YA sci-fi in this world. Fear not. There are other worlds than these.
One of the weakest Stephen King adaptions ever.
A strong villain performance by McConnahey with surprisingly well-done action, but Elba seemed bored. Also, the choice to make it about the kid seemed silly considering the reason people want to see this movie. The plot would be meaningless to someone without the book background and even to those with book knowledge, it's pretty dumb. It was all very generic good vs evil. No motivation beyond "bad guys wants to do bad things" and "good guy wants to do good things". Bad. Insulting. Messy. Maybe Sony should just stop making bad movies.
