WARNING: If you haven't seen it yet maybe turn away or just don't read what I write below.
Truth is I was majorly disappointed. The movie lacked any plot what-so-ever, seemingly keen to drag on without any direction, ending fittingly with an anti -climactic sail off into the sunset. Having loved the book for what it was, I am disgusted by the attempt to parlay it to the big screen. Major elements where left out for no apparent reason...It's not like the book is that long. I often don't advocate the stance that the book is always better than the movie, as I love films, but in this case the old adage holds water. When the credits start to role they have a short tribute to the Author Thompson, who passed in 2005, and all I could think about when this was happening was...He would role over in his grave.
This was a feeble attempt, and even associating with the book should be prohibited.
