It's not one of the best Stephen King adaptations. It's not even one of the best non-horror Stepehen King adaptations. It is still a very fine movie in which Anthony Hopkins once again delivers. It's an unreamrkable movie that in a way reminded me of Stand by Me, only a bit worse. It has a good story and really good acting, but at the end too much remains unsolved.

The greatest thing on earth is to love and to be loved in return!

The movie was a blind buy from me. I first found it good but nothing special. A year or more later I got the chance to read the book and I loooooved it. Right when I finished the book I watched the movie again. I really really wanted to like it but I just saw things that they don't included, things that they changed (even slightlier ones),.... Without knowing the book I would give it like Lecter a B, with knowing the book it's a C- .

I just recently saw this for the first time, and it's on again right now, so I figured I'd comment...

I really rather enjoy this movie. I dunno, I guess it's just really safe and quiet and nice. Just...I dunno. Nice. Reminds me a lil of In America and the likes. Not nearly as good, and overall not amazing, but...yes, I like.
