It's a successful frame-turner, no more, no less, and the pleasure we feel is every bit as mild and just as fleeting.
A high-voltage charge of suspense, action and humor.
It twists and turns in all the expected places, and almost never rises above the ordinary.
Mindless, non-taxing fun, especially if you haven't read the book.
Not as satisfying as it should be.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
This isn't a masterpiece of suspense, but it has its moments and is capable of providing some light summer entertainment.
