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.
The first 20 minutes or so really encapsulated the dark and gritty nature of the film. When Depp's character was assigned his task, I felt the excitement oozing out of me. The plot was really interesting and intriguing, and the director was able to keep a very consistent pace that did not downplay the severity of what was going on or what was about to happen! Very glad I decided to watch this, I was randomly flicking through something to watch and boy was this a treat!
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
