I went in as one of those people who had heard of the story, but never read the book, nor watched any of the previous versions. I didn’t care for the investigation, the characters, or especially the outcome. The only thing that I did find mildly interesting is the commentary on how best to serve justice.
I saw the movie on a huge IMAX screen, and it was worth it. Even though almost all of the exterior shots are CGI it was beautifully done. Not as beautiful as something like *Life of Pi*, but picturesque nevertheless.
I can’t imagine how anyone would want to see this movie if they knew going in *who did it.* I certainly wouldn’t. But if you’re a fan of the story, then sure, give it a watch on the big screen. Otherwise, wait for the DVD.

Creator and developer of the RunPee app. When something doesn’t work right in the app it’s pretty much his fault. 🙂
Aspiring author. Would like to finish his “Zombie Revelations” trilogy if he could break away for working on RunPee and the cottage he’s building for RunPee Mom.
