Critic Review - New York Magazine

Weitz's pacing is so limp you're going to need the electricity generated by a live audience to keep from yelling, "Hurry it up!"

Anyone who has read all four books knows the second is the slowest of the four. Weitz did an excellent job hitting the important parts, setting up the next two movies.

Film is film. Book is book. If I need to read the book to appreciate the movie, then you're telling me head on it sucks. Oh, by the way, it does suck.

No one should have to go through the torture of reading all four books. The only reason why movies based off of books are made is because the viewers are too lazy/don't want to read the books(Who can blame them?). The books are a waste of time and paper and the movie is a waste of labor and twelve bucks. Don't see it.

I agree with Emma O. doesn't matter how the books were, the books suck! They drag on longer than the story of the Titanic.
