I saw it last weekend. I really liked it, all the actors did great. I think I need to read the book now...I'm still confused how some of the plotlines tied together. Anyhow, it'll be one to own on DVD for me.
The book is amazing. I can only imagine what the movie was like. I hope they hung true and stayed the course. It's ultimately a very sad story. It may be confussing, so if you do read it, stick with it, you'll get it once it all comes back again.
I really want to, but I haven't gotten the chance yet. I don't really know much about the story or the book it's based on, but I'm a huge fan of Lana and Andy Wachowski. That alone makes me want to see it.
I went to see it because I had some time to kill and figured what the heck? I left the theater overwhelmed, it was so good! Whenever I try to describe what the movie is about it sounds terrible, but trust me, it's amazing.
