I just revisited this for the first time in 19 years. When I first watched it I deemed it one of the worst movies ever made. It's not, but it's so dumb. What a terrible movie. Very little drive and the ending is so unsatisfying. I don't hate it, I just hate that it's liked. It's not a good movie.
I have to agree with some comments here. This movie really captured my attention and created quite a thrilling atmosphere.
But especially towards the end I felt some disappointment because I had expected something more mysterious, just MORE anyway. Plus, I've watched it again since and (contrary to other movies) seeing it again did not change my mind.
I was not expecting the scene at the end. I think it shocked me, actually. But I like that so much of this movie was about books, because I love books.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
