Read the book or watch this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5834204/
Limp and uninspired screenplay and direction do their best to ruin a great story. They can't quite manage it and the film just ends being distinctly mediocre. Oh, and they had to change the ending as well, because of course they did.
Edit: I just read on Wikipedia about the chaos involved with the production with two directors, and multiple people with opposing views working on the scripts. The resulting film makes a lot more sense now.
The book was better, naturally but I thought they did a good job with the film.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
