Movie Reviews

User Review - 10/10 by Clay B Thomas Hardy was a literary genius. Let's just say this movie adaptation sizzles. The unexpected transformational ending didn't feel contrived at all. In the end, love conquers all. I would have to agree with the casting choices. Catherine Zeta-Jones really has "pagan eyes."
User Review - 4/10 by Molly R If hadn't read the book, I would probably like this more, but it really takes liberties with changing important details of the plot. They oversimplified it. It is also very melodramatic and a bit overdone at times.
User Review - 4/10 by Jennifer B I'm sure people who haven't read the book will like this. Basically, they took the majority of the symbolism from the original novel out, and what they were left with was a shallow historical romance. Accents were atrocious too, and some of the plot was fiddled with if I remember rightly. My English class had great fun ripping the piss out of this film. The sad thing is, I know Zeta-Jones can act, but her talent was mysteriously absent here.
User Review - 4/10 by Katie L I may have liked this movie more if I didn't have to read the book in my English class first...but I doubt it.
