Was so looking forward to this movie and was so let down, it was not up to the level of the ring movies he did before. Even seeing it in 3D was not enough to dazzle us. They totally strayed from the book, and lost so much of the heart of the original story, seemed like blah blah blah, fight, fight, fight, repeat. Even the familiar characters felt dull and uninteresting. The ending was one of the worst ever, and yes it is going to be a trilogy but come on, that ending sucked. It is a pretty good bet that I am done with these movies, hate wasting my time and money.
